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. Our goal is to train, with the highest rigor, military trainees in conducting clinical research using advanced brain imaging technologies to study the causes and consequences of pediatric brain injury. Training in this new field of advanced pediatric MRI technologies will open critical windows of therapeutic opportunity and facilitate the formulation of effective anticipatory and neuroprotective strategies.
