Spinal Cord Research Centre


Welcome to the Spinal Cord Research Centre's (SCRC) web site in the Department of Physiology and Pathophysiology at the University of Manitoba. We are located at the Bannatyne campus, next to the Health Sciences Centre, in downtown Winnipeg.

The SCRC consists of ten core laboratories dedicated exclusively to spinal cord research, eight laboratories housed in the Department of Physiology and Pathophysiology and two in Regenerative Medicine. These core investigators are joined by 12 affiliated researchers from six Departments or Schools at the University of Manitoba and over sixty research associates, post-doctoral fellows, students and support staff.

Our mission is to provide an environment for world-class spinal cord research and training. We are leaders in the field of locomotor control and our research is focused on understanding spinal cord physiology, neuronal networks and cell function, systems physiology and regeneration. Our unified effort towards understanding the cellular basis of spinal motor control is unique both nationally and internationally. We believe that these approaches are complimentary and essential to other researchers efforts to regenerate central neurons and restore function in man.

This web site was set up to inform prospective students and postdoctoral trainees, as well as others interested in spinal cord research, of the research underway at the Spinal Cord Research Centre.

We invite you to learn more about us.
