The Department of Defense established the world’s first brain tissue repository to help researchers understand the underlying mechanisms of traumatic brain injury (TBI) in servicemembers. The new repository is part of a military health care system initiative to bring all the resources it can to better understand how to prevent, diagnose and treat traumatic brain injuries. Defense Department researchers will look at the brain tissue samples to characterize the neuropathologic features of TBI in servicemembers. For further information on donation to the brain tissue repository for traumatic brain injury, email the repository team or call 855-DON-8TBI (855-366-8824).
