The UAB Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation has received a five-year, $2.2 million grant from the National Institute on Disability and Rehabilitation Research to continue its traumatic brain injury (TBI) model system.

During the next five years, UAB hopes to accomplish two research priorities, said Dr. Robert Brunner, who was recently named vice chair of PM&R Development and the project director of the UAB TBI model system. First, it aims to validate methods to assess return-to-driving decisions after TBI and develop a driving intervention. UAB also looks to collaborate with other TBI model systems to examine the role geriatric syndromes play on rehabilitation outcomes.
