Since 2006, the generosity and commitment of individuals, companies and community groups has enabled us to develop our research portfolio.
We are fortunate to have the use of office facilities close to the National Spinal Injuries Centre at Stoke Mandeville Hospital, named the Colin Javens Research Room after the generous donation we received from the Colin Javens Spinal Injury Trust. Special mention too must go to the financial support received from the one of our most energetic supporters, David Tolkien; David sadly passed away in 2014, however his enthusiasm, and dedication to improving life after paralysis continues to inspire all those committed to the success of Stoke Mandeville Spinal Research.
With this background and support – and by listening to the individual concerns of people with spinal cord injury – we can ensure our research targets the issues that matter most to people.

Stoke Mandeville Spinal Research, in collaboration with other British stakeholders in the field of spinal cord injury, has conducted the first nationwide survey amongst patients, carers, families and healthcare professionals to establish the issues that concern them most about living with a spinal cord injury, and which require priority investigation.
By establishing the top ten research priorities from the results of the survey, we can ensure we focus on the key concerns of people with this lifelong condition. In doing so, we can continue to work to improve their quality of life.
