Over the past three decades, the Traumatic Brain Injury Model Systems Center (TBIMSC) program has served as a critical source of research to improve care and outcomes for patients and families affected by traumatic brain injury (TBI). The history and research achievements of the TBIMSC are reviewed in the November/December issue of the Journal of Head Trauma Rehabilitation (JHTR). "On the occasion of the 30th anniversary of the TBIMSC program, this article highlights many of the accomplishments of this well-established, multicenter TBI research consortium," write Marcel Dikjers, PhD, research professor in the department of rehabilitation and human performance at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, and colleagues. In a special article, the authors focused on the recent research activities of the TBIMSC program – including its long-term National Database and efforts to “translate” research advances into improvements in the care and rehabilitation of patients with TBI.
