  1. Resource Description
    The Penn Center for Brain Injury and Repair (CBIR) is one of only five programs nationwide designated by the National Institutes of Health as a Brain Injury Center. CBIR is a multi-disciplined network of more than 25 principal investigators and their teams representing the diverse areas of expertise critical to the research, assessment, diagnosis and treatment of Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI). For over 30 years, CBIR has coordinated the science and practice of Neurosurgery, Bioengineering, Pharmacology, Pathology, Neurology, Pediatrics, Neuroradiology, Rehabilitation, and Emergency Medicine in order to improve all aspects of TBI patient care and outcomes. The CBIR cooperative constitutes one of the strongest, most integrated research teams in the world working together to discover, document and implement ways to significantly improve the quality of life for people suffering from TBI and to prevent the "secondary" or delayed injuries that are initiated by brain trauma.
