Current Studies

NICoE's Research Department currently supports more than 30 active research protocols/studies. The goal of each of these studies is to add to our collective understanding of TBI and brain health and can be classified into one of three main categories:

  • Treatment
  • Observational
  • Retrospective

Treatment Studies

Treatment studies are those in which researchers introduce participants to an intervention and study the effects. Generally the participants are randomized, meaning they are grouped by chance.

Observational Studies

Comprise study designs in which researchers observe the effect of a risk factor, diagnostic test, treatment, or other intervention without attempting to impact who is exposed to it.

Retrospective Studies

A retrospective study is performed using information on past events. Often the data have already been gathered and stored in a registry. Generally, retrospective studies do not follow patients into the future and often requires less time to conduct than a prospective study.
