Your name, telephone number, address, date of birth, date of your spinal cord injury, and general clinical information. After speaking with you, we may ask additional information about your spinal cord injury with your permission. This will help us decide which studies you may qualify for.

Why do you need my date of birth and the date of my spinal cord injury?

By knowing your age and the date of your spinal cord injury, we will be better able to determine which, if any, of our studies you may be eligible to participate in.

Who will have access to my information?
