About the CNRM Brain Tissue Repository


The U.S. Department of Defense has established a brain tissue repository as an important resource to advance traumatic brain injury research.

Comparing injured and uninjured brain tissue will allow scientists and physicians to learn ways to prevent and possibly treat the effects of this injury. This kind of brain injury affects the mood and memory of more than 260,000 servicemen and women, often disrupting their ability to maintain a job, reenter the community, even reconnect with family.
