Bringing Together Researchers, Clinicians, the Military, & Students:
What’s new in the field of Brain-Injury?

We are delighted to announce that the Third Interagency Conference on Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) will be held on June 13-15, 2011, in Washington DC at the Washington Hilton. The first Federal Interagency Conference was held in 1999, and the second in 2006. Attendance at these conferences far exceeded expectations of the planning committee and was way beyond the capacity of the hotel. Feedback from attendees indicated that the conferences were highly successful educational events for the attendees and many requested that the conference continue to be offered in the future. As a result of this enthusiasm, the continued focus of TBI in the media and the need for researchers, clinicians and policy makers to “get out” the “latest and greatest” advances in TBI research and clinical care, a third conference is to be sponsored by a consortium of Federal Agencies. For the first time, this consortium brings together civilian and military research efforts.


Outstanding speakers and symposia on a wide variety of topics within several broad themes:

  • Effective Practices for Community Integration
  • Seminal Advances in TBI Research
  • The Promise of Technology
