CONNECTING SCIENTISTS, TECHNOLOGISTS AND PHYSIOLOGISTS TO MAKE THE CURE A REALITY.


People who suffer catastrophic spinal cord injuries, according to conventional wisdom, have no hope of recovery. At The Mark Pollock Trust we are asking - what if that conventional wisdom is wrong?

The obvious impact of paralysis is lack of movement. But it also results in a tremendous loss of health, independence and dignity. What most don't know is that, as well as the loss of movement, people with spinal cord injuries often can't feel, typically lose sexual function and the ability to have a family without IVF. They lose normal bladder and bowel function and have to try to live and work with the constant management of this on their minds. Life expectancy is often reduced, neuropathic pain and uncontrollable spasms are common. Day in and day out these are the things that exhaust even the most determined.

And so we are on a mission to find and connect scientists, technologists, physiologists and funding foundations so that they engage in collaborative scientific research. We are focused on translating breakthrough scientific advances into humans with the aim of them being available to the entire global paralysis community.
