UTMB Receives $4.2 Million to Train New Rehabilitation Clinicians and Researchers

Guidry News

The University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston has received a $4.2 million award from the National Institutes of Health to help expand scientific training and research to improve the rehabilitation and treatment of people with disabilities. “The new program will increase the number of rigorously trained rehabilitation scientists who will conduct translational investigations and lead clinical research teams,” said Kenneth Ottenbacher, director of the Division of Rehabilitation Sciences at UTMB and lead investigator. The ultimate goal, Ottenbacher said, is to create effective rehabilitation techniques, methods and delivery systems that will allow people who experience a significant injury or impairment to return to the highest possible level of independence and community participation.
