Opportunities and incentives are available to maintain Western Australia as a significant contributor to global neurotrauma research.

The NRP’s mission is to support projects that help the community to avoid trauma to the nervous system, explore mechanisms to minimise nerve damage and therapies to restore normal neural function. The ultimate goal is to ensure that nobody has to live with permanent disability from spinal cord injury or traumatic brain injury.
