Canadian TBI Research Consortium 

Lead Researchers: Dr. James Hutchison and Dr. Alexis Turgeon

This team of more than 100 Canadian researchers is composed of CIHR funded TBI researchers from coast to coast, including researchers involved in the National Initiative for TBI Research, several involved in ONF and REPAR, in research in aging, and all researchers involved in the InTBIR network.  

The Canadian TBI Research Consortium (CTRC) aims to:

  1. Build stronger links with patients and their representatives;
  2. Create a collaborative Canadian research network;
  3. Standardize the way risk is organized to improve health services to patients and their caregivers;
  4. Harmonize the collection of data to help align our research activities with work going on internationally;
  5. Strengthen the health-care system for patients with TBI;
  6. Improve patient survival, functional outcome and health, and;
  7. Support current researchers and the next generation of leaders in TBI research.
