The ABA-Spinal Cord is funded by a group of disease organizations, foundations, and corporate and private donors. The Institute will continue seeking support from individuals and organizations for the spinal cord atlas project.
"We are excited to see such a diverse array of funders come forward with the shared goal of supporting this project to advance spinal cord research," said Elaine Jones. "This is an example of individuals and organizations coming together to fund an important project that will empower scientists and have far-reaching impacts on spinal cord research in the future. We look forward to building similar funding groups for our human brain atlas, developing brain atlas and other projects moving forward."
