Traumatic Brain Injury and
Vision - Optimize psychological health and reduce or eliminate the effects of traumatic brain injury and traumatic stress
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).
It is anticipated that FY21 TBIPHRP funding opportunities will be announced on this website and Grants.gov by July-August 2021.
TBIPHRP Stakeholders Meeting
In April 2021, the TBIPHRP held a Stakeholders Meeting where subject matter experts and individuals with lived experience (consumers) discussed the research landscape, gaps and provided recommendations on how the TBIPHRP can make an impact. The FY21 TBIPHRP Stakeholders Book and a summary of the meeting that includes the presented slides are provided below.
- FY07 - CDMRP managed the appropriations for psychological health (including PTSD) and traumatic brain injury as the Psychological Health and Traumatic Brain Injury Research Program (PH/TBIRP).
- FY08 - No PH/TBIRP funds were appropriated.
- FY09-20 - PH/TBIRP appropriations were managed by USAMRDC-based research program areas aligned with the Office of the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Health Affairs and the Defense Health Agency. CDMRP provided program and award management support as requested during this time. Additional information about the PH/TBIRP can be found here: https://cdmrp.army.mil/phtbi/default
- FY21 - CDMRP assigned to manage the Peer-Reviewed Traumatic Brain Injury and Psychological Health Research Program congressionally-directed appropriation.
