Brain Tissue Repository

The DoD/USU Brain Tissue Repository is the only brain bank facility in the world that is exclusively dedicated to collecting, assessing, analyzing, and storing donated brains from individuals who have served in the military. These selfless and invaluable donations help scientists better understand the pathophysiological mechanisms underlying military-related traumatic brain injury (TBI). This information will expedite advancements in military-related TBI prevention, diagnosis, and treatment. Donations to the repository have made crucial TBI and post-traumatic stress advancements possible.
