- Key research
- Professor Sarah Dunlop leads an integrated program of laboratory and clinical research at The University of Western Australia & Royal Perth Hospital to promote functional recovery after traumatic injury to the nervous system. Laboratory studies use rodent models and focus on understanding and preventing the spread of secondary degeneration to intact tissue.
- Clinical studies comprise three multi-centre randomized controlled trials “Spinal Cord Injury and Physical Activity (SCIPA)” involving all 8 spinal units in Australia and New Zealand to examine novel ways to exercise the paralysed limbs to promote neurological recovery and improve health. The trials span acute care to the community, reflecting the lifetime need of these patients. SCIPA.Com has developeda program to train the trainers, break down barriers to exercise and increase participation once patients are living in the community. “ICED” Immediate Cooling and Early Decompression) is another multi-centre clinical initiative focusing on acute spinal cord injury involving immediate hypothermia in the ambulance to buy time and limit secondary damage before emergency surgical decompression. Another recent multi-centre initiative involves examining bladder care and urinary tract infections, a major secondary complication following spinal cord injury, to promote best practice for bladder care in Australia and New Zealand, Sarah is a past Director of the Spinal Cord Injury Network, a collaborative of clinicians, researchers and people living with spinal cord injury, and past Chair of its Clinical Trials Committee http://www.spinalnetwork.org.au
