Abstract:

This report outlines Dr. Levin s participation in the Mission Connect Mild Traumatic Brain Injury TBI Translational Research Consortium during the time period of August 1, 2008 through July 31, 2009. The first year of work on this project has involved substantial collaborative effort to compile research activities from the clinical investigators into a single, unified protocol and to obtain the required institutional approvals. Research activities from Specific Aims 2.1 Levin, 2.2 Masel, 2.3 Papanicalaou, and 3.1 Robertson were compiled and organized into the Integrated Clinical Protocol in order to 1 minimize the burden of participation for subjects, 2 streamline and coordinate procedures whenever possible, and 3 use resources effectively, particularly study personnel. In addition, the majority of work to define and prepare for subject recruitment, scheduling, and follow-up has been accomplished, and the implementation of a comprehensive data management plan that supports this project and all the clinical investigators is being implemented.
