UBC researchers help develop X Prize in spinal cord Injury

The X Prize Foundation has developed a new process to award a prize in spinal cord injury. Prof. Janice Eng, Dept. of Physical Therapy and Prof. John Steeves, International Collaboration On Repair Discoveries, attended the first focus group to generate ideas on possible prize criteria.  The next step will be to detail the feasibility (timeline, prize value, impact, marketability of the topic, originality, award criteria) for the highly ranked topics and to continue to narrow the potential topics.
