Researcher clinicians help bridge the gap between scientific discovery and medical care – Part 2

Adolescent traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a major public health concern, resulting in over 35,000 hospitalizations in the U.S. each year.

Our study aims to identify imaging biomarkers of long-term neurocognitive outcome after severe adolescent TBI.
