    Rick Hansen has high hopes for new research centre.


    A $13-million spinal-cord research centre to be built at Vancouver Hospital will be just the second of its kind in the world.

    The ICORD -- International Collaboration on Repair Discoveries -- announcement was part of $65 million in health-related research projects at universities and colleges across B.C. unveiled yesterday by Premier Gordon Campbell and Rick Hansen.

    "This is a critical component of building a new economy for British Columbia," the premier said. "Often it is research that will provide us with our competitive advantage for our traditional industries."

    The ICORD facility, slated to open in December 2004, will join a centre in Miami as one of only two institutions looking at spinal-cord-injury therapies.

    "This announcement brings us closer to our dream of finding a cure," said Hansen. donharrison@pacpress.southam.ca
