The Perry Cross Spinal Research Foundation aims to facilitate, collaborate and initiate the connections and research required to find a cure for paralysis.
There are many extraordinary scientists and organisations all over the world working on the pieces of the giant puzzle of paralysis. They are focused on how to solve paralysis and the thousands of complications it can have on the human body.
PCSRF recognise that finding a cure for paralysis is an international challenge that can only be solved when this global community come together, and therefore works to unite world-wide research centres, advocates, specialists, not for profit organisations, service providers and leading medical specialists on our common cause to collaborate to find a cure.
Perry Cross Spinal Research Foundation has a unique and important strategic focus on uniting effort as well as facilitating ground breaking research that would not otherwise help us get closer to the answers, closer to a cure. The organisation funds critical research that improves through-life support and achieves the best health and lifestyle outcomes to people throughout the world affected by paralysis to regain movement and control of their lives. PCSRF also works tirelessly promoting prevention and awareness messages to the wider community.
Following initial support of Griffith University’s Eskitis Institute’s research and knowing the capacity and track record of its people and their work, the Perry Cross Spinal Research Foundation has the confidence to back their world class and ground breaking project in "Olfactory Cell Transplantation to Repair Spinal Cord". PCSRF is currently focusing all of its efforts to support this exciting research project.
In 2011 PCSRF established a Scientific Committee to assist, advise and lead the Foundation in relation to research, medical and specialist matters. The committee comprises world leading experts in the areas of spinal injury research and medicine. The Foundation works with centres and specialists across the world to support, progress and promote spinal injury research and clinical trials. We also fund spinal injury research projects to advance and fast track progress in the development of work in the field in Australia.
Each year, advancements in spinal injury recovery are being made providing significant hope and progress for the world. It is the goal of the Foundation to keep working until complete recovery is achievable.
