Brain Trauma Blueprint Action Summit
October 18-19, 2022 – Washington, D.C.
About the Brain Trauma Blueprint Action Summit
The inaugural Brain Trauma Blueprint (BTB) Action Summit held on October 18-19th 2022 at the Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center in Washington DC, will convene national stakeholder groups across government, academia, foundations, industry, and individuals with lived experience, to plan to execute the TBI Precision Research Roadmap, through collective public and private action.
Every year, millions of Americans, including Veterans, active military, first responders and public safety personnel, experience traumatic brain injuries and their devastating chronic effects, including suicide. Yet, in 2022, we still have no FDA-approved TBI diagnostics or treatments.
Through prior BTB State-of-the-Science Summits we worked with the research community to identify and publish consensus challenges and a path ahead. The resulting TBI Precision Research Roadmap maps out priorities for accelerating a first generation of precision diagnostics and targeted treatments for brain trauma.
Through the Action Summit, the TBI leadership community will discuss priorities and a path to foster collaboration across the broader stakeholder community to achieve solutions sooner for those suffering from trauma-related brain disorders.
