The Model Systems Knowledge Translation Center (MSKTC) summarizes research, identifies health information needs, and develops information resources to support Model Systems programs.
Model Systems are specialized programs of care in spinal cord injury (SCI), traumatic brain injury (TBI), and burn injury. Model Systems pool information and conduct research intended to improve the long-term functional, vocational, cognitive, and quality-of-life outcomes in individuals with SCI, TBI, or burn injury.
The MSKTC works closely with researchers in these model systems to develop resources for people living with SCI, TBI, or burn injuries and their supporters. Evidence-based materials are available in a variety of platforms such as printable PDF documents, videos, and slideshows on the MSKTC website.

MSKTC is funded by the National Institute on Disability, Independent Living, and Rehabilitation Research (NIDILRR).
