The Prince Salman Center for Disability Research was established to address the real and important needs of persons with disabilities and their families. In addressing those needs, the PSCDR has set its goal as the promotion, conduct and support of scientific research and the application of new knowledge to the benefit of persons with disabilities and their families.
We believe the PSCDR has a great opportunity to advance the causes of persons with disabilities. In addressing that opportunity, the PSCDR will undertake basic and applied research projects in the biological, behavioral and social sciences; it will promote and develop collaborations with scientists both within the Kingdom and world-wide; and it will collect and disseminate information through all media including the Internet.
We hope the PSCDR will advance new insights into the causes of disabilities and develop new strategies to prevent them, or reduce their impact on an individual. We further aspire to a time when new knowledge created by research will lead to more effective service and support systems for persons with disabilities and their families.
At the PSCDR, we stand ready to move forward into the future with expectations for important accomplishments and renewed spirits. That future holds great promise for all of us, including persons with disabilities, God willing.
- Sultan Bin Salman
