The Neurosciences, Rehabilitation, and Vision SCN Scientific Office embeds research and measurement into everything they do. This helps identify priority issues, develop and implement innovative solutions, and evaluate our success.
The NRV SCN was created to encourage development and implementation of evidence-based innovations that will improve NRV-related health outcomes. The goal of this research program is to support foundational research in our three theme areas (Neuroscience, Rehabilitation & Vision) that seeks to transform patient outcomes and enhance the experience of patients and families encountering neurological, rehabilitation or vision-related health problems.

The NRV SCN Scientific Office supports and provides training and mentorship opportunities to increase capacity in NRV-related research across Alberta. The NRV SCN Summer Studentship Awards Program is designed to provide funding support to undergraduate students to participate and develop research skills applied to an area in neurosciences, rehabilitation or vision research relevant to the NRV SCN strategic goals. This capacity-building initiative will support trainees towards the generation of evidence to drive decision-making, ongoing health care system improvement and sustainability.
In addition to facilitating research opportunities, the Scientific Office of the NRV SCN has several projects underway where they are co-leading the design and implementation. Some of the priority projects of the NRV SCN Scientific Office include the following:
If you are a researcher, clinician, trainee, student, family member or person with lived experience and you have an interest in any of our priority projects, contact Dr. Elisavet Papathanassolgou (Scientific Director, NRV SCN, firstname.lastname@example.org) or Dr. Kiran Pohar Manhas (Assistant Scientific Director, NRV SCN, email@example.com).
The Scientific Office of the NRV SCN has built, and continues to build its collaborative research network around the three NRV streams: neurosciences, rehabilitation and vision. Our research network spans academia, clinical operations and community partners. Some of our key partnerships, which involve specific priority projects, are listed below:
If you are a researcher, clinician, trainee, student, family member or person with lived experience and you have an interest in any of our collaborations or in forging a collaboration, contact Dr. Elisavet Papathanassolgou (Scientific Director, NRV SCN, firstname.lastname@example.org) or Dr. Kiran Pohar Manhas (Assistant Scientific Director, NRV SCN, email@example.com).
