Abstract : Brain injury is a leading cause of death and disability in children. Recent advances in pediatric magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) techniques are revolutionizing our understanding of brain injury, its potential for recovery, and demonstrating enormous potential for advancing the field of neuroprotection. We have created a highly structured, collaborative, and multidisciplinary training program in BRAIN (Brain Research Advanced Imaging with NMR) to advance research skills of investigators from all branches of the US military focusing on pediatric brain injury.
