Concussion studies win research funding

A collection of 19 research projects on the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of concussions in young people have won funding from the Canadian Institutes of Health Research.

The projects include one at the University of Calgary on the prevention, early diagnosis and management of sport-related concussion in youth ice hockey. Another, at the Holland Bloorview Kids Rehabilitation Hospital in Toronto will look for novel approaches to improve the recovery of children and youths who suffer concussions.

CIHR is providing $4.3 million in funding, with another $3.2 million from its partners, Defence Research and Development Canada, Fonds de recherche du Québec—Santé, the Hotchkiss Brain Institute, the Ontario Neurotrauma Foundation and the Ontario Brain Institute.
