Traumatic Brain Injury Summit

If you noticed I published a number of funding lines related to brain injury (concussion or as the military calls it traumatic brain injury – TBI).  Our campus Brain Interest Group (BIG) has had a number of conversation about the increased national investment in research and access to the nearby Fort’s soldier population.

Fort Leonard Wood will hold a ‘summit’ next Thursday afternoon (March 31) and Friday morning (April 1st) to work on establishing a large military – academia – industry research coalition to prevent and treat TBI. If you want to attend please contact me (tuppers@mst.edu).
