The University of Minnesota Medical School recently received funding to be the prime site for a spinal cord injury Center for Excellence through an interdisciplinary team in the upper Midwest. The grant — Minnesota Spinal Cord Injury Model System (MN SCIMS) — aims to provide a multidisciplinary continuum of clinical care for people with spinal cord injuries (SCI), which will also be used to base and expand research on SCI. Department Head and Professor Leslie Morse, DO, is leading the effort, which is being driven by the Rehabilitation Medicine Department. The U is partnering with a number of regional healthcare systems on the project. Learn more.
