In Fiscal Year 2007 (FY07), Congress appropriated funding for traumatic brain injury and psychological health research in response to the traumatic brain injuries sustained and psychological health issues experienced by our deployed forces in Iraq and Afghanistan. The current Peer-Reviewed Traumatic Brain Injury and Psychological Health Research Program (TBIPHRP) complements ongoing DOD efforts toward promoting a better standard of care for psychological health and traumatic brain injury in the areas of prevention, detection, diagnosis, treatment, and rehabilitation. To efficiently manage the TBIPHRP, CDMRP will utilize its two tiered review process (https://cdmrp.army.mil/about/2tierRevProcess).
