The Brain Injury Research Center of Mount Sinai (BIRC-MS) has a reputation for excellence in diagnosing and treating the cognitive, emotional, and behavioral symptoms resulting from traumatic brain injuries (TBI) as a result of investigators’ research.
Our focus includes identifying, treating, and characterizing TBI through neuroimaging, biomarker discovery, and neuropathology, and our investigators have documented findings in more than 150 publications. Our Center is staffed by a group of researchers whose scientific and clinical accomplishments have been widely recognized and honored. For more than a decade, we have focused on studies that have broken new ground in assessing clinical interventions, developing psychometric instruments, describing key problems experienced by individuals with TBI, and incorporating an interdisciplinary approach to the study of long-term TBI outcomes.
The Brain Injury Research Center’s funding is provided by
- The National Institute for Disability, Independent Living, and Rehabilitation Research (NIDILRR), which supports the Mount Sinai TBI Model System of Care
- The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), which supports the Mount Sinai Injury Control Research Center
- The National Institutes of Health (NIH) which supports the Late Effects of Traumatic Brain Injury project (U01) and Comprehensive Investigation of the Clinical Course of TBI (K01)
