People: 

The Center for Paralysis Research (CPR) is a component of the College of Veterinary Medicine at Purdue University. The administrative structure of CPR is that of a university department. CPR possesses its own independent budget from the State of Indiana in addition to corporate support, endowments, state and federal grants. Though CPR is a department with its own head (Center Director Riyi Shi), it cannot confer graduate degrees as an academic department can. Therefore, CPR faculty hold academic positions in other academic departments, primarily the Department of Basic Medical Sciences and the Department of Biomedical Engineering. CPR is a family of professionals dedicated to the core mission.
