Congressionally Directed Medical Research Programs -- Traumatic Brain Injury and Psychological Health Research Program -- Investigator-Initiated Research Award
The FY23 TBIPHRP IIRA is intended to support studies that will make an important contribution toward understanding, preventing, assessing, and treating psychological health conditions and/or TBI. Research projects may focus on applied research through translational research, including preclinical studies in animal models and human subjects, as well as correlative studies associated with an existing clinical trial.
Applications should clearly demonstrate the project’s potential near-term and long-term outcome(s)/product(s) (knowledge and/or materiel) and how they will impact a critical problem or question in the field of research and/or patient care in the FY23 TBIPHRP IIRA Focus Areas(s) addressed. Research involving human subjects and human anatomical substances is permitted; however, this FY23 TBIPHRP IIRA may not be used to conduct clinical trials.
