The Brain Health Research Program Coordinator and well known US Army neurologist, COL Sidney Hinds II, was invited to give the President's Forum Keynote Lecture at the inauguration of the New Jersey Institute of Technology's (NJIT) Institute of Brain and Neuroscience Research (IBNR) at the NJIT Campus, Newark, New Jersey on March 6, 2017. COL Hinds presented an overview of combat-related TBI challenges, highlighting the current state of the science of combat-related TBI, ongoing longitudinal studies to address knowledge gaps, and provided insights into ongoing collaborations supported by the DoD Blast Injury Research Program Coordinating Office (PCO), US Army Medical Research and Development Command and their DoD, Federal agency, academic and industry partners.
With the creation of the IBNR, NJIT is bringing together basic, applied and translational neuroscience research from several NJIT departments to unify and integrate neuroscience research. In addition, the IBNR has already made plans to consolidate its relationship with Rutgers and other external partners, as well as, expand its scope of collaboration with new partners.
Following the Keynote lecture, attendees participated in a poster walk-through session and tours of the IBNR research centers and laboratories.
