World-Class Discoveries Start Here

Led by the esteemed physician-scientist Dr. Ross Zafonte, our Spaulding scientists share the belief that people who face devastating injuries, diseases, and conditions should have access to the best care that rehabilitation medicine can offer. We’re not only researchers in labs; many of us are clinicians, nurses, and therapists, collaborating closely with care teams. Our understanding of what’s working today, and what’s needed tomorrow, drives our research exploration.

Your support sets us apart.

We do whatever it takes to help our patients heal. That’s what motivates us and makes Spaulding special. But it’s your support that sets us apart. It accelerates our ability to translate our research and discoveries into action.

Together, we can help people live healthier, fuller lives.

More than 100 different research studies are actively underway at Spaulding. Meet Spaulding’s research faculty and learn about their labs here.

Paula Ness Speers and Mark Speers

Ellen Gordon with daughter Karen Gordon Mills and son-in-law Barry Mills

“Spaulding is the ultimate can-do place, where there is nothing that is impossible. A person’s limits are only the beginning, not the ending. Spaulding scientists spend hours in the laboratories researching answers and never give up.” It was this conviction that led Ellen Gordon and her late husband Melvin to establish the Ellen R. and Melvin J. Gordon Center for the Cure and Treatment of Paralysis at Spaulding, in partnership with Harvard Medical School.
