We’ll follow up our tour with a casual networking lunch provided by the AAPS Member Engagement Committee. See you campus and meet your colleagues!

ICORD (International Collaboration On Repair Discoveries) is an interdisciplinary research centre focused on spinal cord injury. Our researchers are dedicated to the development and translation of more effective strategies to promote prevention, functional recovery, and improved quality of life after SCI.

The Blusson Spinal Cord Centre is a unique facility dedicated to advancing world-leading integrated research and care for people with spinal cord injury. By combining research and clinical space in the same building, investigators will be able to rapidly translate discoveries into validated clinical practices to ensure effective outcomes are achieved.
