I am very pleased to write this foreword for The Walk Again Society which seeks to develop
solutions to enable persons disabled from spinal injury to walk again.
This is a bold vision involving the efforts of medical researchers, scientists and engineers
working together to better understand the essential nature of spinal cord injury and to garner
insights into treatments and remedies.
Queensland University of Technology, through the ongoing research work at the Institute of
Health and Biomedical Innovation, has commenced this journey with the work of Dr. Ben Goss
and his research team. Over the past three years, Dr. Goss’s team has achieved encouraging
results with the partial regeneration of severed spinal cords in animals.
The Walk Again Society wishes to support this journey through the provision of additional
fi nancial resources and seeks your assistance to enable persons disabled from spinal injury
to walk again a reality.
