DRI Grants

The Delaware Rehabilitation Institute receives funding from the National Institutes of Health via a COBRE grant to support the infrastructure of core facilities provided to researchers doing work in the physical rehabilitation area.


These Core facilities include a Clinical Research Core, Patient-Specific Modeling Core and Cytomechanics Core.  The goal of these cores is to advance science through rehabilitative medicine via multidisciplinary research.
