Welcome to the REACT Center

The Rehabilitation Research Resource to Enhance Clinical Trials (REACT) Center is funded by NIH grant 1P2CHD086851 to serve as a national resource that provides the medical rehabilitation research community with knowledge, skills, and tools needed to catalyze high-impact, interdisciplinary clinical trials.

REACT is proud to serve as the coordinating center for the Medical Rehabilitation Research Resource, or MR3 Network, a consortium of six centers nationwide providing expertise, technology, and resources to support clinical and translational research in medical rehabilitation.


This workshop, co-hosted by NCMRR and REACT on September 29–30 at the NIH, gathered medical rehabilitation investigators and clinical trialists from around the country to discuss the future of trials in medical rehabilitation. With topics ranging from "Design Considerations" to "Sustaining Treatment Effects over Time," the event was designed to foster critical thinking about the this crucial research area. The two-day event was videorecorded and will result in a white paper on the topic.
