Identified as a silent epidemic by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, concussion (mild traumatic brain injury) is a major public health concern facing the medical community and society at large in the United States and worldwide.
The U-M Concussion Center maximizes its impact by facilitating the development and sharing of groundbreaking ideas that translate laboratory, clinic, and community observations into interventions that reduce concussion risk and improve outcomes in those affected by the injury. We have created Synergies of Excellence that uniquely integrate our Research, Clinical, and Outreach & Engagement Cores to create integrated solutions that advance concussion knowledge and protocols.
Our success is based on:
- Complete cutting-edge science by connecting and developing partners internal and external to the University
- Applying innovative translational science to patient populations
- Disseminate new information to relevant stakeholders at a local, state, national, and international level
