After a successful Massey TBI Grand Challenge kick-off event in February, the competition came to a close on May 31 with the Wolverine Den (MCIRCC’s version of Shark Tank). Five teams were awarded funding thanks to the generous gift from the Joyce and Don Massey Family Foundation.
Thanks to the tireless efforts of MCIRCC research teams, the future of combat casualty care is looking bright. Over the past six months alone, MCIRCC has had 13 Department of Defense grants in the works—8 of which have already been submitted.
