What research is being done?

NINDS supports TBI research through grants to major medical institutions across the country and conducts TBI research in its intramural laboratories and Clinical Center at NIH in Bethesda, Maryland.   The Center for Neuroscience and Regenerative Medicine (CNRM) is a TBI research collaboration between intramural NIH and the Uniformed Services University for the Health Sciences (USUHS). NINDS-funded research involves studies in the laboratory and in clinical settings to better understand TBI and the biological mechanisms underlying damage to the brain. This research will allow scientists to develop strategies and interventions to limit the primary and secondary brain damage that occurs within days of a head trauma, and to devise therapies to treat brain injury and improve long-term recovery of function.

Combining the efforts of the many physicians and scientists who work to develop better treatments for TBI requires everyone to collect the same types of information from people including details about injuries and treatment results. The NINDS Common Data Elements (CDEs) project brings the research community together to develop data collection standards.  The Project recently released a set of Sports-Related Concussion CDEs for use in clinical research. These CDEs are avaialable at:  https://commondataelements.ninds.nih.gov/SRC.aspx#tab=Data_Standards.
