Brain Tissue Repository

The Department of Defense, Uniformed Services University of Health Sciences 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 aid quickened advancements in military-related TBI prevention, diagnosis, and treatment. Donations to the BTR provide the gift which makes this research possible to help others.
