Rehabilitation Research News: October 3, 2022

From the Director's Desk

October is National Disability Employment Awareness Month, and NCMRR would like to acknowledge the contributions of people with disabilities whose work helps keep the nation’s economy strong. 

I’d like to congratulate and thank the members of the Medical Rehabilitation Research Resource (MR3) Network for the excellent scientific retreat they hosted last week on Rehabilitation Clinical Trials: Innovations, Designs, and Tribulations. If you did not attend, I encourage you to review the recordings on the Medical Rehabilitation Research Resource Network (MR3 Network) websiteExternal Web Site Policy.

Like many of you, NCMRR staff members are beginning to travel more regularly to scientific meetings and conferences. We encourage you to stop by our talks, say hi at our booths, and generally engage with us. We miss seeing you in person and look forward to interacting more in real life. 

Finally, NIH is hiring for multiple positions at multiple institutes. By the time this newsletter arrives, the most recent job posting on the USA Jobs website will have closed, but we are continually looking for new program, review, and policy staff. New postings occur frequently, and we would be happy to talk to you about these opportunities. 


  • NICHD’s 60th Anniversary Scientific Symposium will be on October 17. For more information, visit the symposium website to register and check out the agenda. We look forward to celebrating with you!
  • Our next Medical Rehabilitation Research Speaker Series will be Friday, November 18, at noon ET. More information to come.
  • Our next National Advisory Board for Medical Rehabilitation Research meeting will be on December 5 and 6. We are hoping to have both an in-person and online presence for this meeting.
