The Coalition for Brain Injury Research supports brain cell regeneration research as a potential method to cure traumatic brain injuries. TBI has a higher rate of occurance than most major medical disorders affecting over 1.5 million people in the U.S. annually. Yet funding for the type of basic science research that is necessary to acheive success continues to be minimal at best. Support from the federal government will expidite the search for a cure thereby renewing hope to TBI survivors and their families.
