The Craig H. Neilsen Foundation (CHNF) supports programs and scientific research to improve quality of life for those living with spinal cord injury (SCI). Its portfolios support: (i) research opportunities to identify effective treatments and move them from the laboratory to clinical testing, and (ii) research about the interrelation of behavioral, social, psychological, and other factors that affect quality of life for the SCI community.

In this workshop, Constanza Svidler, PhD, program officer at CHNF, will present to BU researchers about the foundation's mission, funding priorities, programs, and other opportunities. She oversees the psychosocial research portfolio, which supports behavioral, social, and psychological research. Dr. Svidler will be joined by BU’s Timothy O’Shea, PhD, assistant professor of biomedical engineering, who has received CHNF support.
