The Grand Challenge supports high-impact proposals by funding milestone-driven research over a 12-month timeframe.

Up to $600,000 is available to fund the development of diagnostic, device, therapeutic, or health IT solutions that address the initial ‘golden hours’ of care after severe traumatic brain injury (generally the first 48 hours). Treatment administered during this critical timeframe can determine patient survival and have a significant effect on long-term function and disability.

The Grand Challenge is made possible thanks to a generous gift from the Joyce and Don Massey Family Foundation.
