About Us

REACT serves as a vehicle to help investigators successfully design and conduct clinical trials that will fill key gaps in medical rehabilitation and thereby optimize patient care. The Center funds pilot studies and provides education, collaboration, data sharing, consultative services, and access to core facilities to the national research community; all with the goal of fostering innovative clinical and translational research and, ultimately, definitive clinical trials.
