New Jersey TBI Model System at JFK-Johnson Rehabilitation Institute

In 2002, the JFK Johnson Rehabilitation Institute (JRI) in Edison, New Jersey was awarded a Traumatic Brain Injury Model System (TBIMS) grant from the National Institute on Disability, Independent Living, and Rehabilitation Research (NIDILRR). This five-year grant allows JRI to pursue research regarding innovative assessment and rehabilitation approaches for persons with traumatic brain injury (TBI).
