Researchers at the University of Washington in Seattle and the Allen Institute for Brain Science have received a $2.4 million grant from the Paul G. Allen Family Foundation to study traumatic brain injuries. "This unmatched investigation into the long-term impacts of TBI is bold discovery science at its best, and we are proud to support this important work," said Susan M. Coliton, the foundation's vice president. Specifically, the grant will be used to help scientists study the long-term structural and biological effects of traumatic brain injury, as well as connections to age-related neurological diseases.
