Research into Innovative Treatment Ideas for Traumatic Brain Injury

Research into Innovative Treatment Ideas for Traumatic Brain Injury

Researchers hope the innovations and treatments they are currently investigating will be able to help patients with a traumatic brain injury in the future. To treat a TBI, researchers are thinking outside the box. The nation’s leading experts and researchers are coming together at the Joyce Massey TBI Summit to discuss the most pressing challenges and how to work together to find innovative solutions.
