  • CPN Challenge Second Round - $700,000 grants available for SCI Research

    The second round of the CPN Challenge has just launched - In this round, we're giving out 12 grants of at least $50,000 across 6 award categories for innovative and novel research related to Spinal Cord Injury (SCI) treatments. Part of a larger Challenge Program, these grants have a quick and straight forward application process, and we’re particularly eager to hear from research(ers) in the following areas:

    - New Investigators (recently hired SCI researchers or established researchers who recently started working on SCI)
    - Collaborative Research (eg: nanotechnology and biochemistry)
    - Cross-Over Research from adjacent scientific fields that can be applied to the field of SCI
    - Translational Research from animal experiments towards human clinical trials
    - Reaching & Grasping (research to help restore reaching and grasping function for human SCI patients)
    - Out of the Box Ideas (risky, high potential research ideas)
    - Sharable Data (The Trial & Error Prize - is looking for research that can be shared so that the SCI community can learn from each other and not duplicate experiments)

    The application deadline is January 21st 2016, and we welcome all interest and any questions. To view and enter the grants, please go to
