Abstract:

The Long-Term Impact of Military-Relevant Brain Injury Consortium LIMBIC is a coordinated, multicenter, nationwide translational research collaboration that is studying the effects of mild, combat-related TBIs, whether single or repeated, on chronic disabling symptoms, recovery from combat and trauma-related comorbidities, and long-term brain function. This Consortium builds upon the accrued experience of the previous Chronic Effects of Neurotrauma Consortium CENC funding cycle 2013-2019, where an Executive Leadership team, a Study Coordinating Center, centralized research Cores Database and Biostatistics, Imaging, Biomarker, Scientific and Community Advisory Boards, a large, nationwide, multi-level, Prospective Longitudinal Study PLS and a multi-site, Retrospective Database Study RDS were all established and implemented. These essential elements of CENC have been carried over to LIMBIC and key enhancements of the PLS and RDS have been implemented. The LIMBIC team has completed all regulatory activities, personnel hiring, technical upgrades and documentation adjustments needed for the PLS to initiate follow-up evaluations on all extant participants and also recommence new recruitment of participants, with the easing of COVID-19 research restrictions.
