Abstract : This report outlines the overall activities of the Mission Connect Mild Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) Translational Research Consortium during the time period of August 1, 2009 through July 31, 2010. Dr. John Holcomb serves as the Initiating Investigator and Co-Director of the Consortium, along with Dr. Claudia Robertson, Co-Director. This report also provides a summary of consortium activities to date, reviews issues related to the leadership of the consortium, and describes Dr. Holcomb's scientific participation as a co-investigator on both laboratory and clinical projects. In addition, a detailed summary of each consortium project is provided on pp. 17 - 36. In our second year of working together as a Consortium, we have made significant progress. Work is proceeding on all projects, with progress on all projects. Our Working Group structure is providing an effective mechanism for scientific collaboration and coordination of related projects. We have successfully initiated patient enrollment in our clinical protocol and by adapting to the unique issues at each institution have doubled enrollment over the last 3 months.
