The goal of our clinical research is to improve the early identification, treatment and rehabilitation of traumatic brain injury (TBI, also known as concussion) and posttraumatic stress (PTS). The Center for Neuroscience and Regenerative Medicine (CNRM) has the unique focus on improving the diagnosis and care of traumatic brain injuries that are relevant to both military service members and civilians. CNRM supports ongoing clinical research at military treatment facilities, the National Institutes of Health, and local civilian hospitals.

CNRM encompasses multiple dimensions of research related to TBI and PTS in both military and civilian populations. Due to CNRM's many clinical research studies, it is possible to include participants with TBI that can range from a recent occurrence to one that happened long ago, and may vary from mild to severe. In addition, some studies may even include those without TBI/concussion symptoms or a history of PTS.
