The Texas TBI Model System of TIRR

TIRR Memorial Hermann has been designated as a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) Model System with funding by the National Institute on Disability and Rehabilitation Research (NIDRR). The NIDRR TBI Model Systems program began in 1987 and is the largest research program on recovery from TBI in the world. The TBI Model Systems study database is the largest database on traumatic brain injury.

The Brain Injury Recovery Center (BIRC) at TIRR Memorial Hermann was one of the original TBI Model Systems sites. The TBI Model System program now consists of 14 centers around the United States. TIRR Memorial Hermann is one of only six sites nationwide to have both TBI and Spinal Cord Injury Model Systems programs.
