Welcome to SCI Focus brought to you by Independent Living Research Utilization (ILRU) in partnership with the Rehabilitation Research and Training Center (RRTC) on Spinal Cord Injury at the MedStar National Rehabilitation Hospital (MedStar NRH) in Washington, DC.

In this issue, our focus is on findings from the State of Science (SoS) conference which was held in Chicago, IL as a pre-conference to the American Spinal Cord Injury Association (ASIA) Annual Meeting. The SoS was a joint conference of the RRTC on Spinal Cord Injury at MedStar NRH and the Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC). Video recordings of the conference presentations are available for viewing by following the links below.
