Rehabilitation Research at NIH: Moving the Field Forward

The conference, sponsored by the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD), along with partnering NIH Institutes and Centers, will take place on the NIH campus in Bethesda, Maryland. The intent of this conference is to address the full scope of the rehabilitation research portfolio at the NIH, to highlight accomplishments and advances that have resulted from NIH-sponsored projects and programs, and to provide the scientific community and the public an opportunity to provide input in the development of the recommendations for the NIH Rehabilitation Research Plan. The meeting is an opportunity to highlight the field, to identify gaps and possibilities in rehabilitation research, discuss infrastructure needs, and highlight training and career development opportunities.
