  • CDEs for preclinical TBI outcome measures

    NINDS and the DoD have sponsored the development of Common Data Elements (CDEs) for preclinical TBI outcome measures. Three working groups of preclinical TBI experts volunteered their time and effort to make this effort a success.

Mayumi Prins, PhD Professor of Neurosurgery
UCLA Brain Injury Research Center
I worked in the lab during my undergraduate running HPLC samples. I had the rare honor of meeting the mom of an 18yo girl who drove for the first time by herself when she was hit by another car and had severe TBI. Seeing first hand how this young girl’s life was completely changed really affected me and soon after that I started my research on TBI in the developing brain. She was/is my inspiration.
