InTBIR Mission

Working together to improve outcomes and lessen the global burden of traumatic brain injury by 2020

InTBIR is a cooperative effort of the European Commission (EC), the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) and the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to coordinate and leverage clinical research activities on traumatic brain injury (TBI) research. InTBIR’s goal is to improve health care and lessen the global burden of TBI by 2020 through the discovery of causal relationships between treatments and clinically meaningful outcomes.  InTBIR seeks to encourage well-designed, hypothesis-driven studies that include the collection of high quality data followed by rigorous statistical analysis.
