To accelerate discovery, our scientists and clincians are forming interdisciplinary teams that are translating knowledge, partnering with industry and community organizations, and expanding capacity to implement practical solutions.
Our researchers are:
- Deepening an understanding of how brain injuries result in visible and chronic conditions and higher risk for dementia and movement disorders
- Studying the mechanisms of the immune system's response to neurotraumas that will inform pharamlogical, rehabilitative, and arts-based interventions
- Developing new approaches to imaging, sensing, and clinical data analytics that better detect, monitor, and predict the trajectories of brain injuries
We are investing in people, projects, and resources that enable convergence research in the lab, the clinic, and the community. Learn more about our program and offerings at the links below.
We've built a network of over 100 research labs at Ohio State in fields spanning neuroscience, electrical engineering, psychology, public health, music, and rehabilitation sciences. Through our community partners, we are building a coalition of professionals and patients to help brain injury survivors recover and thrive.
Partnership & Engagement Grants (PEGs)
We are seeking proposals for projects supporting Ohio State's land-grant mission that develop and deepen relationships with community members and organizations to enhance research recruitment, translation, and strategic partnerships that advance the prevention, detection, and treatment of brain injuries.LEARN MORE - CLOSED
Action Potential Grants (APGs)
CBI Action Potential Grants (APGs) support the development and capture of federally-funded program or center grants that elevate interdisciplinary faculty clusters currently working in basic, clinical, and translational research on chronic brain injury topics. Faculty clusters, or groups of faculty working on interdisciplinary or convergent research within a relevant topic area, can use these awards to develop, coordinate, and submit federal grants.LEARN MORE - OPEN/ROLLING SUBMISSIONS
2022 CBI Research Day
Join researchers, clinicians, and trainees to share, discuss, and connect at #CBIRD2022. This flagship scientific event for brain injury research features invited and local speakers, poster presentations, and updates on program and pilot projects. We invite all Ohio State faculty, staff, and students to attend. CME credits are available.
Registration and abstract submission is open from December 1, 2021 to February 1, 2022!LEARN MORE
CBI Faculty Spotlight
Cynthia Beaulieu, PhD
Dr. Beaulieu's OSU journey began over 30 years ago as a first year graduate student and following completion of undergraduate work at that school up north. She trained at Dodd Rehabilitation during graduate school, and returned to OSU in 2019 as an Associate Professor in PM&R, specifically to continue research in TBI rehabilitation with Drs. Bogner and Corrigan.
What should people know about your research?
Data is the key to discovery. While technically a “next-step” in our investigation into TBI rehabilitation, CARE-4-TBI will be the first step in bringing acute TBI rehabilitation into the realm of big data. CARE-4-TBI will build the infrastructure to capture day-to-day clinical data generated by rehabilitation teams. This infrastructure is targeted for implementation across 15 sites within the TBI Model Systems. Imagine the volume of data this will generate at the patient-level! Then, imagine what will be possible to discover and to create with this volume of data!!
What do you like to do in your free time? I recently became a grandmother for the first time, so I'm having lots of fun babbling with a really cute tiny human (and getting to watch another brain evolve!). When I'm not babbling, I enjoy time with my husband. Together we like to travel (usually to wine regions), watch football, and spend time outdoors walking, biking, or hiking. I also enjoy running, reading, cooking, and contemplating the next 14er climb in the Rockies.
During 2021, more than $2.3 million was invested in research projects through the President's Research Excellence program - and CBI affiliates were represented on 6 of the Accelerator Awards! View their projects here: https://t.co/1fczMwTGBz 🧠👏 (2/2)
Join us next Friday for a special installment of NT-RIPS: a SURF Trainee Showcase, featuring fellows from our 2021 cohort presenting their work! These fellowships support undergraduate trainees engaging in research projects within CBI labs. View seminars: https://t.co/bU8n8mlFfO https://t.co/rRCQraLosB
