About the Mobility Foundation Center for Rehabilitation Research

The Mobility Foundation Center for Rehabilitation Research was established in the early 1990s at UT Southwestern Medical Center. Its purpose is to advance research in spinal cord injury, stroke, and other mobility-limiting disease processes and provide education on injury prevention. The primary focus is to apply research aimed at providing improved therapies for mobility impaired patients. Research within the Mobility Foundation Center is made possible by the Mobility Foundation Center Endowment, the Lone Star Paralysis Foundation Fund, and the Kent Waldrep Fund for Clinical Research in Spinal Cord Injury.

Mission Statement
