Approximately 1.9% of the U.S. population, or some 5,596,000 people, report some form of paralysis, among whom, some 1,275,000 are paralyzed as the result of a spinal-cord injury.
("One Degree of Separation | Paralysis and Spinal Cord Injury in the United States" published by the Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation, 2009).

The Reeve-Irvine Research Center (RIRC) is a basic science research facility devoted to the study of repair, regeneration, and recovery of function after spinal cord injury.

The mission of the RIRC is to find new treatments for spinal cord injury through the collaborative research and educational efforts of prominent scientists and clinicians both at the University of California, Irvine and around the world.
