Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)

Our department’s faculty members provide care for patients who have suffered serious brain injury as a result of an accident. They also conduct basic and clinical research aimed understanding what happens during a traumatic brain injury (TBI).

The advances our researchers have made include a new drug treatment for reducing the often deadly swelling of the brain that is caused by TBI. Researchers are also testing ways of cooling the body temperature of a person who has suffered a brain injury as a way of preventing lethal swelling.
