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 Center for Rehabilitation Sciences Research, Dr. Daniel Perl's Neuropathology Research Division, the Traumatic Injury Research Program, 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”
