MR3 Network

Medical Rehabilitation Research Resource Network

The Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD), through the National Center for Medical Rehabilitation Research (NCMRR), the National Institute for Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS), and the National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering (NIBIB) have funded six P2C resource center grants that provide infrastructure and access to expertise, technologies, and resources to support clinical and translational research in medical rehabilitation across a wide range of disciplines and disease focus areas.
