The South Carolina Spinal Cord Injury Association seeks and distributes, to individuals with spinal cord injuries, research opportunities in South Carolina and around the world who are currently recruiting participation. Participation options range from in-person trials, online surveys, telephone interviews, and direct mail surveys.  To that end, we procure these research studies monthly, and provide the information to members who have requested it through email and direct mail.

If you are interested in receiving research opportunities monthly, please fill out the online form. Please note that not all research opportunities will fit each and every person, and we do not guarantee that a research study will accept you into the study. 


If you would like to receive research opportunities, call (803) 252-2198, email brian [at], click the box above. or fill out the online form.
