The Shirley Ryan AbilityLab (SRALab) has gained widespread recognition for its research in outcome studies measuring the long-term impact of medical rehabilitation in patients with disabilities.

In efforts to improve long-term outcomes for people with disabilities, our projects aim to develop a deeper appreciation of barriers to and facilitators of job retention, and strategies to surmount them, identify strategies to support employment for people with progressive disorders, develop accommodation strategies that are suitable for rural and low resource environments, and promote knowledge translation that enhances employment outcomes for persons with physical disabilities and the professionals who work with them.
