Center of Innovation on Disability & Rehab Research (CINDRR)
CINDRR ArchiveThe Center of Innovation on Disability and Rehabilitation Research (CINDRR) was previously a Health Services Research and Development (HSR&D) Center of Innovation (COIN) funded from 2013 to 2019. CINDRR investigators continue the work of CINDRR with the same collaborations and same mission: To optimize rehabilitation services for Veterans with disabilities to improve their health and quality of life.
The support of HSR&D was invaluable in creating a research foundation that Gainesville investigators are continuing to build on. Post-CINDRR funding for these investigators now comes from many other sources, for example, from VA investigator-initiated research projects; from special project funding from the Office of Rural Health, the Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation Service, and other national VHA program offices; from non-VA sources such as the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the National Endowment for the Arts; and from non-Federal sources such as the Neilsen Foundation.
This website presents information on the continuing work of Gainesville investigators who worked under CINDRR but also serves as an archive of the work done by the HSR&D COIN. Archive pages and information will be identified as such throughout the website. The CINDRR that was a COIN was a joint effort of investigators in Tampa and Gainesville, Florida.
Tampa investigators are continuing their work as the Rehabilitation Outcomes Research Section, Research Service, James A. Haley Veterans’ Hospital and Clinics in Tampa. The collaborations between Gainesville and Tampa investigators continue as joint investigative and evaluation teams.
