MR3 Network

Medical Rehabilitation Research Resource Network

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

Visit our resource centers

Learn about recent advances in medical rehabilitation research, enhance clinical and research skills, connect with colleagues, and find possible collaborators, mentors, and funders for medical rehabilitation research projects.

Access upcoming workshops, meetings/conferences, and recently posted webinars.

PIlot Studies and Scholar Award programs offer access to resources and experts to develop, conduct, or commericalize medical rehabilitation ideas and projects. Deadlines are approaching at some MR3 Network Centers. Learn more and apply.

NEW! REACT Research Roundtables are tailored to researchers at any stage of clinical trial development; centered around the needs and focus area of the presenting investigator; and facilitated by highly experienced researchers and clinicians, who provide feedback and insight. Learn more and apply.

The NCMRR within the NICHD led the development of a trans-NIH 5-year plan, which lays out research priorities for medical rehabilitation that will guide NIH support for rehabilitation medicine and benefit individuals who require rehabilitation for temporary or chronic limitations in physical, cognitive, or sensory function. Read the plan online in this Archives of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation article.

Download the plan from the NICHD website.
