How far will $1.7 million go when applied towards research on traumatic brain injuries (TBI)? Far enough to help progress ground breaking research in the areas of neuropsychology, rehabilitation psychology and physical medicine and rehabilitation at the Southeastern Michigan Traumatic Brain Injury System (SEMTBIS).
The DMC Rehabilitation Institute of Michigan and the Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at Wayne State University was awarded a 5-year grant totaling $1.7 million from the U.S. Department of Education’s National Institute on Disability and Rehabilitation Research (NIDRR).
SEMTBIS will be able to apply this funding towards cutting-edge research focused on the clinical care of patients with TBI. Specifically, they are concentrating on “Full Access to Community Life”, a project that looks at priority areas such as employment of people with disabilities and the community integration of TBI survivors and their family members.
