The Center for Neuroscience and Regenerative Medicine’s Brain Tissue Repository was established to help better understand traumatic brain injury (TBI), the most common wound of recent wars, and a huge burden for many returning servicemembers and families. Through the repository, scientists and physicians will use innovative approaches to help better understand how to care for our military personnel after a head injury.
The U.S. Department of Defense has established a brain tissue repository as an important resource to advance traumatic brain injury research.
Comparing injured and uninjured brain tissue will allow scientists and physicians to learn ways to prevent and possibly treat the effects of this injury. This kind of brain injury affects the mood and memory of more than 260,000 servicemen and women, often disrupting their ability to maintain a job, reenter the community, even reconnect with family.
