The Fiscal Year 2012 (FY12) Defense Appropriations Act provides $9.6 million to the Department of Defense Spinal Cord Injury Research Program (SCIRP). The SCIRP challenges the scientific community to design innovative research that will foster new directions for and address neglected issues in the field of SCI-focused research. The vision of the SCIRP is to advance the treatment of spinal cord injury and its consequences. This program is administered by the US Army Medical Research and Materiel Command through the Office of the Congressionally Directed Medical Research Programs (CDMRP). Mechanism-specific Program Announcements/Funding Opportunities, including areas of encouragement, the intent of the award mechanism, eligibility, and submission deadlines, and General Application Instructions, are posted on the Grants.gov and CDMRP websites (http://www.grants.gov and http://cdmrp.army.mil, respectively).
