BIAA HOME : WORKING IN BRAIN INJURY : RESEARCH

Brain Injury Research

The Brain Injury Association of America (BIAA) does not currently fund research but advocates for increased funding from public and private sectors, promotes participation in research studies and disseminates research findings to individuals with brain injury, their family members and the professionals who provide treatment and long-term care.

BIAA collaborates with the nation's leading brain injury research centers, such as the TBI Model Systems, to abstract the findings published in professional journals into brief, easy-to-read articles. By translating scientific discoveries into useful and practical knowledge for consumers and the general public, BIAA and its partners help improve the quality and relevance of brain injury research and treatment. A database of the Model Systems abstracts can be accessed here.
