About us

Since 1988, Spinal Cord Society NZ Inc (SCSNZ) has been working towards finding a cure for spinal cord injury and paralysis. The research laboratory in Dunedin has expertise with adult stem cells. While curing spinal cord injury remains the end goal for SCSNZ, the stem cell research has now diversified to search for treatments for other health conditions and is now focused on finding a cure for Type 1 Diabetes.

Use of funds

SCSNZ are researching adult stem cells and their ability to stop the auto immune attack that destroys insulin-producing cells in the pancreas and causes Type 1 Diabetes.

The lab's monthly running costs are around $30,000.

Your donation will help fund this research.
