SpineCare Foundation Research Fund

The SpineCare Foundation Postgraduate Scholarship enables a student to establish a register of spinal cord injuries in children in order to enable those working in the field to better collaborate on research, treatment and prevention of such conditions. While a national database exists for adults, there is presently only fragmented collection of information on children across Australia.
