100% of your gift for research

We are a recognised non-profit (ANBI status- NL). None of our staff are paid and we cover our operating costs internally. Thus, every cent you donate goes to research

ONE single goal

Lean & agile, we keep focusing on one goal only: find effective therapies/ treatments to give those currently living with spinal cord injury a future without paralysis

Together stronger & faster

SCI won’t be cured in isolation. We are working with partners and recognised scientific experts to fast-track at least one promising therapy to human trials

The story behind 

Corinne is paralysed from the waist down further to a car accident (March 2001, Indonesia)

A few days after the accident, an ICU nurse told me: “You have to learn to suffer, You have to accept your future”.

Months later though, an intern said to me: “Your chances of recovery are statistically not good. However, research is progressing. Who knows what’s around the corner…”

The potential of science is even bigger since then. Corinne firmly believes that a cure will become possible, if not for her, then for younger generations. Therefore, she is committed to advancing research into curing spinal cord injury and founded endParalysis to do so.

Our volunteers

Thank you all for your valuable support!

We maintain a professional, smart and creative approach thanks to the support of a number of volunteers. They work with us on ad hoc basis and we are very grateful to them for sharing their talent with us and offering their time. You can find the list of our volunteers in our yearly reports. 

Our partners

Partnership is a cornerstone of our approach. Undoubtedly, curing spinal cord injury or even making significant progress towards functional, sensory repair and recovery will require a combination of various therapies. Multiple research strategies have to considered to tackle the multiple issues behind spinal cord injury. Therefore, we advocate for an integrative approach and collaborative effort involving various research labs and organisations. Along those lines, we are keen to cooperate with key SCI research and patients organisations / foundations around the world, sharing and leveraging resources / knowledge in an optimal way. Therefore, we partner with the following global organisations and we thank them for their confidence and cooperation:
