The Spinal Cord Injury/Disease Research Program (SCIDRP) was established by the legislature in 2001 to support research in Missouri that will advance scientific knowledge in the area of spinal cord injuries and congenital or acquired disease processes of the spinal cord.

One of the purposes of the SCIDRP grants is to encourage young investigators and those new to the field to do exploratory research and test new ideas, with the expectation that the most promising will justify more substantial support from agencies such as the National Institutes of Health.
