Who We Are

 

REsearching STrategies fOr REhabilitation (RESTORE)

 

The RESTORE Network is a multi-institute initiative (Hotchkiss Brain Institute, Libin Cardiovascular Institute, McCaig Institute for Bone and Joint Health) created to enhance research into clinical neurorehabilitation.

The RESTORE Network aims to enhance the recovery and lives of individuals living with a number of neurological disorders by evaluating and discovering novel therapeutic interventions. 

Our team is comprised of Scientists, Clinicians, and Engineers with the expertise to conduct multidisciplinary and integrative clinical research in spinal cord injury, stroke, and other movement impairments.
