NINDS and the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development request grant applications for research using multi-drug combinations to promote neurological recovery in traumatic brain injury.

Severe head injury is a massive, crude insult across the nervous system.  Identification of the earliest recovery window and application of neuroprotective treatment is of the highest research priority.  The development of novel therapeutic approaches to improve functional recovery is essential, with specific attention to research that will evaluate new pharmacological compounds, including a combination of agents.
