World-renowned centre of discovery science and translational research for diseases and injuries of the nervous system.
We aim to optimise and accelerate outcomes for people with severe disability by continuously striving to discover better treatments sooner. Our centre engages with the community to shape our research approach and to deliver solutions that make a difference to the quality of life of people with diseases and injuries of the nervous system.
The Clem Jones Foundation is the philanthropic arm of the Clem Jones Group. The trustees are dedicated to benefiting the community through ongoing commitments to the wishes and philosophies of the late Dr Clem Jones AO.
This project is a translational research program developing an olfactory cell transplantation therapy for chronic and acute spinal cord injury.
