Shaping the future of research into cerebral palsy
Cerebral palsy is a chronic neurological condition that affects how individuals control their muscles and movements. It is usually caused by injury to the brain before, during or after birth.
Cerebral Palsy Research (CPRes) is a multidisciplinary community, university and clinical research group which brings together people with cerebral palsy, their family and carers, clinicians, healthcare professionals and researchers. We work in partnership to undertake research which:
- increases understanding of the causes and consequences of cerebral palsy
- leads to new, or the enhancement of existing, supportive therapies for people with the condition
- is directly relevant, focused and addresses the needs of the cerebral palsy community
