Currently, more than 10,000 people with spinal cord injury are living in our community, with 400 new cases occuring every year.
Neil Sachse lives for the day that people with spinal cord injury will walk again. He established the Neil Sachse Foundation as a first step to curing spinal cord injury. Thanks to vital community support, we have established the Neil Sachse Foundation Spinal Cord Injury Research Centre, to provide a dedicated laboratory for researchers and students.
As an integral part of the University of Adelaide’s Neuroscience Research Insitute, the Centre will also become an international centre-of-excellence aimed at making a significant difference to the lives of people who suffer a spinal cord injury.
