Cutting Edge Research

IBRF is committed to excellence in the neurosciences and is dedicated to promoting brain health. Historically, cures for brain disease, injury, and dysfunction have been typically slow in development. In the face of that challenge, IBRF seeks to accelerate the development of brain cures by supporting translational, clinical research that is state-of-the-art and innovative in its approach. By gathering an international cadre of experts, and utilizing a network of worldwide, multidisciplinary venues, IBRF is able to harness the brightest talent and resources to tackle the complexities of the brain and provide hope for future cures. IBRF brings a think-tank landscape to the frontier of neuroscience research, ultimately to improve the quality of life and functioning of brain impaired individuals.

Areas of Focus include:

  • Traumatic and Non-Traumatic Brain Injury, with special attention to Severe Disorders of Consciousness, Coma, and Stroke;
