Dr Stanford's current research interest is in acute assessment of spinal cord injury and improving data collection to establish a platform for research into outcomes of early interventions in acute spinal cord injury. He is collaborating with a network of colleagues in NSW on a project called Acute Management of Spinal Cord Injury (AMOSCI).
