Clinical Trials 

Researchers at the Brain Injury Research Center of Mount Sinai offer opportunities for people with traumatic brain injury (TBI) to volunteer in research studies. Volunteers in some of our studies are paid to compensate for their time. Research is an essential element in finding new and better ways to help people with traumatic brain injury. Please see below a list of the four studies that are currently seeking volunteers.

Study 1: Online Group Treatment for Emotional Regulation

The Brain Injury Research Center of Mount Sinai is seeking people who have had a traumatic brain injury (TBI) and any of the following difficulties:

  • Understanding your emotions
  • Losing your temper
  • Controlling your behavior
  • Getting things done when upset
  • Taking it out on others when you're upset
  • Feeling upset or crying for no reason

The research study will evaluate how easy it is to learn skills to deal with these problems by participating in online group therapy. Compensation will be provided for your time.

If interested, please call the Brain Injury Research Center at 212-241-5152
GCO # 12-1256 Project 3, Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai IRB approved

Study 2: TBI and Health in Adults: An Exploratory Study

The Brain Injury Research Center of Mount Sinai is seeking people who had a traumatic brain injury (TBI) when they were at least 40 years old, are at least one year post-injury and were hospitalized for their injury.

Interested individuals will have the opportunity to participate in either 1 or 2 interviews designed to learn more about brain injury and aging. Interviews will include a brief test of thinking abilities and questions about health and functioning after brain injury. Compensation is provided.

If interested, please call the Brain Injury Research Center at 212-241-5152
GCO# 11-1455, Project 2, Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai IRB approved

Study 3: Management of Post-TBI Fatigue with Light Exposure

The Brain Injury Research Center of Mount Sinai is seeking people who have had a traumatic brain injury (TBI) and fatigue. The research study will evaluate two different kinds of experimental light exposure to reduce fatigue. Compensation will be provided for your time.

If interested, please call the Brain Injury Research Center at 212-241-8845
GCO # 12-1256 Project 2, Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai IRB approved

Study 4: The Late Effects of Traumatic Brain Injury

The Brain Injury Research Center of Mount Sinai is interested in learning more about the health conditions that people with TBI have and why some people have a few problems as they age and others have more difficulty. The center is looking for people who have had a traumatic brain injury, are at least 40 years old, and are at least one-year post injury. Interested individuals will participate in an interview about health and functioning, tests of thinking abilities, a blood draw, and an MRI scan. Compared to other diseases affecting the brain, very little is known about the long-term effects of TBI on the brain. This study is unique in that it involves brain banking. Participants will be asked, regardless of their age, gender, or health condition, to consider brain donation and to make their wishes known.
