Shepherd Center is designated as both a Spinal Cord Injury Model System and a Traumatic Brain Injury Model System by the National Institute on Disability, Independent Living, and Rehabilitation Research (NIDILRR) and stands as an epicenter for leading-edge treatments, technologies, and research in the field of brain injury medicine.
