The event will begin at 7pm and complimentary refreshments will be available.

The CPN Challenge will award $20 million in grants and prizes for spinal cord injury research over the next 10 years. Stage I of the Challenge was launched in 2014, and in the first round of grants, 12 teams were awarded $700,000 of grants. The second round recently launched in which 12 grants of at least $50,000 are available in 6 different categories. These grants are available to researchers anywhere in the world and all teams have to do is submit proposals online through the crowdsourcing platform, InnoCentive.
