NeuroTrauma Research In Progress Seminars

CBI's flagship seminar series meets biweekly to share and discuss current projects in brain injury, spinal cord injury, and related topics. This series brings together basic and clinical biological scientists, engineering and data analytics researchers, and pychologists and neuroimagers into a single collaborative group. NT RIPS is co-sponsored by the Center for Brain & Spinal Cord Repair.

Alzheimer's Research Center of Excellence
The ARCOE seminars are building a community of Alzheimer's and dementia researchers around campus to explore and develop research in neurodegeneration. Dementia, Parkinson's, and epilepsy are neurodegenerative conditions that can result after a brain injury, and ARCOE is key to bridging the neurotrauama and neurodegeneration research teams.

CLinical Arts Seminar Series

CLASS seminars are bridging the humanities and fine arts disciplines to neurological research and care teams so we can better understand the impact of music, dance, art, and drama on recovery from brain injury. These multidisciplinary interventions are often understudied and frequently asked for by patients and providers alike.
