The Traumatic Brain Injury Model System (TBIMS) at the University of Washington's Department of Rehabilitation Medicine and Harborview Medical Center, is one of 16 centers funded by the National Institute on Disability, Independent Living, and Rehabilitation Research (NIDILRR). Our goal is to promote the health, well being, and recovery of people with TBI by applying knowledge gained from cutting edge research into our clinical care of patients with TBI. The University of Washington TBI Model System contributes to the national Traumatic Brain Injury Data Center at Craig Hospital in Englewood, CO, and participates in independent and collaborative research. The research we conduct provides information and resources to individuals with TBI, their family, care givers, health care professionals and the general public.
