Steven Broglio & Team Awarded Biosciences Funding for New Concussion Center

Steven Broglio, Concussion Lead

Congratulations to U-M Injury Prevention Center Concussion Lead Dr. Steven Broglio and team, for the selection of their application for the new U-M Concussion Center! This exciting new collaborative effort joins 4 other large projects and 5 smaller ones funded through a $45M first round of investments from President Mark Schlissel’s Biosciences Initiative. According to Dr. Broglio, “We have great faculty here, the resources are phenomenal, but what we have lacked is the ability to bring everyone together under a formal structure, and the Biosciences Initiative will allow us to do that.” This funding will enable the new center to expand its concussion research capacity through the recruitment of an additional neuroscientist, an epidemiologist, and a clinical interventionist.
