Our Research Grants Program

Despite being the world’s most common lifelong physical disability and affecting 20 million people worldwide, cerebral palsy is one of the most underfunded conditions.

SMUDRA is committed to funding high-quality cerebral palsy research focused on early detection and early intervention, chronic pain, technology, regenerative medicine, and genomics. Learn more about our funding process.

Our research priorities advance our mission to fund the best Ayurveda-based research to change what’s possible for cerebral palsy.

Our research priorities advance ?

Research projects receive funding from SMUDRA based on scientific merit as determined by reviewers. As new evidence arises, research priorities may change.

  • With cerebral palsy (CP), as with any brain injury, timing matters – and many children do not require adequate care because of their location or their circumstances.
  • The clock doesn’t start at birth – it starts in the womb – and the sooner we detect cerebral palsy (CP), in a baby, the sooner we can help them. Early interventions such as physical, occupational, and speech therapy during childhood utilize the brain’s higher neuroplasticity – its ability to change continuously.
  • By reaching children as early as possible, we maximize their physical potential and minimize the effects of cerebral palsy (CEREBRAL PALSY (CP),) on them. We make treatments more comfortable and less scary, and we can reduce the need for subsequent treatments and painful surgery. They can live the life they envision for themselves, feeling included and free.
  • Chronic pain is real, common, and complex for people with cerebral palsy (CP) – and chronic pain is the least researched aspect of this prevalent disability. SMUDRA is working with the best scientists in the world to change this.
  • SMUDRA is looking at the whole picture and asking important questions. Can we prevent chronic pain by addressing it in childhood? How does gender affect the way a person experiences pain and processes medication at the cellular level? How do we develop additional treatments that reduce spasticity, thus maintaining joint health and reducing the two primary sources of pain for people with cerebral palsy (CP)? How does the treatment of chronic pain affect a person with cerebral palsy (CP) throughout their life? Does drug efficacy change as people age?
  • The answers we found will help us uncover effective chronic pain treatments for people of all ages. Pain-free, people with cerebral palsy (CP) will have more options and more energy to follow their wants and needs. They may establish a career or start a new one that previously seemed unattainable. They can earn the income they deserve and can afford affordable housing. They can spend time with their friends and family. They can travel more easily. They will experience less physical and emotional stress. They can be in the moment and not worry about how the next one will feel.
  • Smudra knows that technology can revolutionize the diagnosis and treatment of cerebral palsy (CP), and it can change the way people with cerebral palsy (CP) experience the world. Technology will also play a major role in preventing Cerebral Palsy (CP). We are committed to funding Ayurveda research that embraces these possibilities.
  • Movement influences how people perceive the world – in every possible way. Mobility technology could make it possible to reduce treatments and surgeries, promote greater independence, and improve quality of life.
  • Communication is the key. It’s part of every conversation, central to every relationship, and included as a qualification on almost every job listing. The technology will unlock communication for people with cerebral palsy (CP), who cannot access current technology. It will recognize their voice and engage them in ways they have never experienced before.
  • People with cerebral palsy (CP) always have their own voice, but they often lose privacy, endure awkwardness, and rely on others to speak for them. Communication technology will enhance their ability to share their ideas and connect them with their personality.
  • Technology will reshape what we know about Cerebral Palsy (CP) and turn dreams into reality.
  • Irreversible. This is how brain injuries such as cerebral palsy (CP) have been treated for decades. But SMUDRA recognizes that now is the time to challenge and change assumptions about brain repair. Regenerative medicine research does this by examining the ways that different types of tissue and cells stimulate growth to help reorganize brain function, optimize brain function, or restore lost brain function.
  • Regenerative medicine represents many overlooked possibilities for cerebral palsy (CP). Can we reverse the damage caused by stroke in infancy? Can we reverse the damage that occurs when a child stops breathing for too long? Can we convince the brain to heal itself? Will we be able to apply these advances to people of all ages, changing lives in ways we never thought we could?
  • If we can, it will open up a world of possibilities and options for people with cerebral palsy (CP) and their families.
  • Around 20% of cases of cerebral palsy (CP) may be due to at least partial genetic conditions.
  • Since cerebral palsy (CP) is such a diverse condition that presents in myriad different ways with co-occurring conditions, the genomic challenge is great. SMUDRA and the researchers we support are up to the challenge.
  • At its core, genomics uses what is already inside someone to answer internal questions and improve their lives. Because people with cerebral palsy (CP) experience it in such specific, individualized ways, genomics is ideally positioned to change the way they are treated. Once it reaches its potential, we may be able to help someone optimize each aspect of their treatment – ​​find a pain medication that works without unwanted side effects, a physical therapy technique Discover techniques that work in conjunction with a drug, uncover ways to reduce fatigue, and discover techniques that work for anyone’s exact type of cerebral palsy (CP).
  • If we know that a pregnant woman may be genetically predisposed to factors that increase the likelihood of cerebral palsy (CP), we can care for her to give her and her baby the best possible outcome.
  • The potential positive effects are endless, and there is so much more to learn and do.
