TBI Research at USU
Like the brain, the Uniformed Services University's (USU) traumatic brain injury (TBI) research enterprise involves many “parts” that perform a specific role in conjunction with and contribution to the larger whole.
The “parts” include TBI research programs such as CNRM, the , , the, and more. These distinct activities work in harmonious unison to accelerate requirements-driven TBI research that advances the health, readiness, and lethality of our nation’s warfighters.
USU’s TBI research enterprise utilizes its renowned expertise, expansive capabilities, cutting-edge technologies, and state-of-the-art facilities to fulfill the U.S. Department of Defense's (DoD) top TBI needs.
Current research initiatives include:
Delineating the Neurological Effects of Repetitive, Low-level Blast Exposures
Developing Lifesaving Solutions for Intracranial Hemorrhages in Austere Environments
Examining the Long-term Effects of TBI
Investigating Enhanced Treatments for TBI-related Symptomatology
Visualizing the “Invisible Injury”
