Collaborative Research on Acute Neurological Injuries


Brain Injury Association of America announces new Research Grant Program  

The Brain Injury Association of America (BIAA) established its research grant program in 2019 with a generous bequest from the estate of Linda Redmann and an allocation from the Association’s reserves. Donations from the public supplement the fund. The theme of BIAA’s grant program and its overall goal is “Finding cures for brain injury.” The program is grounded in the understanding that for some people, brain injury evolves into a chronic health condition that can cause or accelerate multiple diseases. For details, see BIAA Research Grant Program.
