National Institutes of Health, Defense to Create Traumatic Brain Injury Database

The National Institutes of Health's Center for Information Technology and the Department of Defense are developing a central database on traumatic brain injuries, according to an NIH news release.

The Federal Interagency Traumatic Brain Injury Research will receive $10 million in funding over four years to aid comparative effectiveness research on brain injury treatment and diagnosis.

Other goals include improving diagnostic criteria for concussions and milder injuries, identifying predictive markers for those at risk of developing conditions related to traumatic brain injury and improving evidence-based guidelines for patient care for brain injury.
