The ICORD Community Resource Centre is a large open resource space located in the atrium of the Blusson Spinal Cord Centre (BSCC). The Resource Centre is staffed by undergraduate volunteers, and its primary aims are to make SCI research accessible and understandable for the community, as well as to provide important information and resources to people visiting the BSCC.
The Resource Centre also publishes an online knowledge translation blog series, SCInfo, which aims to translate dense scientific literature on the topic of SCI into easy-to-understand summaries for those without a science background. Each summary aims to capture the main ideas and points of interest from research articles published by investigators at ICORD or elsewhere. We hope that this resource enhances community engagement with SCI research. Blog posts are written by undergraduate volunteers, which provides them with a valuable exercise in knowledge translation.
Visit the Resource Centre weekdays between 10am and 4pm. Please call first if you are making a special trip. The centre is staffed mostly by student volunteers, and occasionally the hours vary: 604-675-8800 (press 1).
