International Foundation for Research in Paraplegia (IRP)
Since 2011, along with With Jocelyne Bloch, Grégoire Courtine and Philippe Boissonnas, I have supported the International Foundation for Research in Paraplegia (IRP) in its institutional communication and fundraising efforts, in particular by organizing and chairing “Evenings of Hope.”
For over 20 years, IRP has been working to help the lives of those affected by paraplegia. They finance research projects offering grants to post-doctoral students, and award a special prize for research in Switzerland and around the world, selected by a specialist scientific committee composed of international experts.
For more information on the recent activities of the Foundation as well as the latest development paraplegia research, you can access their most recent “Neuronews“.
