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.
The REACT Center provides access to tools and resources, education and training, and pilot funds to support and enhance clinical research within the medical rehabilitation field.
The REACT Center is funded under RFA-HD-15-010--Medical Rehabilitation Research Resource (P2C) and sponsored by National Institutes of Health (NIH), Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD), which is home to the National Center for Medical Rehabilitation Research (NCMRR), the National Institute for Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS), and the National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering (NIBIB).
The REACT Center leadership direct this initiative by ensuring that the center delivers content where, when, and how it is needed, and by continuously adapting, updating, and improving its offerings, functions, and services in response to the needs of the medical rehabilitation field.
