PD5 raises vital funds to support Spinal Cord Injury Research of the Neil Sachse Centre. Neil’s vision remains the focal point of the Neil Sachse Centre:
to find a cure for Spinal Cord Injuries and change the future for people living with these disabling conditions.
Each rider is asked to raise $3,000 which pays for five PET scans for our clinical trial. PET is an imaging technique that produces 3D images by detecting gamma rays emitted by radiopharmaceuticals. The SAHMRI cyclotron gives the NSC the ability to source specific radiopharmaceuticals to undertake these scans, and our trial participants will be scanned onsite at SAHMRI.
