Innovative research dedicated to improve treatment and management of brain injury

Promoting a deeper understanding of brain injury to inform the public and enrich the lives of patients

CNS-CREF provides funding to:

  • Support brain injury research

  • Provide postdoctoral grants exploring brain injury rehabilitation

  • Provide travel funding for researchers to attend scientific meetings and conferences

Sample of Current Research

  • Exploring which treatments are most productive in addressing cognitive impairment following a brain injury

  • Researching the effects that gender and hormones have on stroke progression and recovery

  • Exploring the use of imaging and its role in determining rehabilitation outcome

  • Examining biomarkers associated with neurodegeneration to determine if they are associated with cognitive and affective disturbances

  • Learning more about proteins and genes that impact neuroplasticity, memory and inflammation, and their role in rehabilitation
