Kessler Foundation on the Cutting Edge of Research for People with Disabilities

West Orange, NJ (PRWEB) July 8, 2009 -- Kessler Foundation announced that it was awarded seven grants totaling $2,049,100 during the first half of 2009. The grants were awarded by federal and state agencies, major universities and other health organizations to support research that improves quality of life for individuals with multiple sclerosis, spinal cord injury, traumatic brain injury, stroke and other disabling conditions.

"Kessler Foundation Research Center continues to be recognized as a national leader in the area of disability research," stated Rodger DeRose, President and CEO of Kessler Foundation. "Continuing to be awarded grants from these organizations in support of our research is proof of that."

Grants were awarded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH), National Institute on Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS), National Institute on Disability and Rehabilitation Research (NIDRR), New Jersey State Commission on Brain Injury Research, University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey (UMDNJ), the University of Pennsylvania, Select Medical Corporation, and CENT (Center for Experimental Neurorehabilitation Training).

"These grants enable us to advance our understanding of how the brain is affected by stroke, brain injury and neurodegenerative diseases like MS and Huntington's disease, while providing young investigators with advanced training in neurocognitive research," noted John DeLuca, PhD, vice president for research at Kessler Foundation Research Center. "Patients with these devastating disorders will benefit from the improvements that will be achieved in neuropsychological rehabilitation."
