Research

Researchers at The MetroHealth InstituteAt the MetroHealth Center for Rehabilitation Research, we believe that research is the critical gateway to outstanding patient care. Each of our research divisions engages in multiple ongoing research projects led by our physicians and scientists. When we innovate, make discoveries, and translate these discoveries to the standard of care, our patients benefit, not only regionally, but nationally and globally.

The Center has over $54 million in extramural funding (total value of the grant, direct and indirect) from federal and state sources and foundations. The department of PM&R is currently ranked 2nd in NIH funding among U.S. medical school PM&R departments (Blue Ridge Institute for Medical Research, February, 2022).

In partnership with Case Western Reserve University and the Louis Stokes Cleveland Veterans Affairs Medical Center, we are the global leader in the development and implementation of functional electrical stimulation (FES) technologies for motor restoration for persons with central nervous system paralysis.
