Rehabilitation Research and Training Center (RRTC)
Empowering people with disabilities to achieve their well-being, independent physical functioning, and community participation through better understanding of health and function.
Center for Brain Stimulation (CBS)
The mission of CBS is to develop new diagnostic and therapeutic techniques for neurological and psychiatric disorders utilizing non-invasive brain stimulation. We also conduct studies on healthy volunteers to understand how the human brain works.

Hand Rehabilitation Lab
The primary goal our research is to develop new techniques and devices to facilitate functional use of the hand after stroke. Toward this end we are investigating the underlying sensorimotor control of the hand, the changes that occur after stroke, and the factors that influence rehabilitation.
Center for Aphasia Research & Treatment
The Center for Aphasia Research & Treatment was created in 2001 to respond to the challenge of living with aphasia.
Miller Limb Lab
The primary goal of the research we do in this lab is to understand the nature of the somatosensory and motor signals within the brain that control our movements, and develop neural interfaces that directly connect the brain of a spinal cord injured patient with the outside world.
Translational Cell Therapy Lab
Studying the relationship between adult stem/progenitor cell dysfunction and age-related degeneration.
Midwest Regional Spinal Cord Injury Care System (MRSCICS)
The Shirley Ryan AbilityLab & Northwestern Memorial (known as the Midwest Regional Spinal Cord Injury Care System) has been chosen by NIDILRR as one of 14 SCI Model System Centers.
Neuromuscular Control and Plasticity Lab
Our lab is focused on the mechanisms underlying the multijoint control of movement and posture in able-bodied individuals and in individuals with neuromotor pathologies. Specifically, we are interested in understanding the relative contributions of intrinsic muscle properties, limb geometry and neural activation in the control of whole limb function.
