Palmer Center for Chiropractic Research

The Palmer Center for Chiropractic Research (PCCR) was established in 1995 as an essential part of the Palmer College mission to advance knowledge through research. PCCR is the most highly-funded chiropractic research center in the U.S.

Our research investigations are supported through funding from the National Institutes of Health, U.S. Department of Defense, Health Resources and Services Administration, as well as from private donors and foundations. Our researchers collaborate extensively with patients, clinicians, personnel, and investigators located physically and virtually in national and international settings to answer research questions of importance to both chiropractors and their patients.

For more than 25 years, faculty, staff, and administrators at PCCR have dedicated themselves to public health by developing knowledge and translating that knowledge to the practice of chiropractic health care.

PCCR Collaborations – Local and National

Projects are often a collective effort between scientists at the PCCR and collaborating investigators including physicians, chiropractors and scientists. During the past 10 years, the PCCR has collaborated with the following institutions.
