The National Scientific Committee (NSC)

This world class forum consists of some of the United Kingdom’s finest specialists in the field of medical physics and electronics. Drawn from across the leading teaching hospitals and universities, members give their time freely to consider development and research projects specifically related to Spinal Cord Injury.

Members of the Scientific Committee, two of whom are spinal cord injured* are constantly developing new research projects which might benefit those living with Spinal Cord Paralysis. In addition they have considerable influence over the choice of thesis subjects elected by PhD students. Twice a year the Committee meets formally to assess its findings and to analyse and assess costs of new projects. In turn these are then submitted to the INSPIRE Board of Trustees for funding. This in effect gives the green light for projects to start.
