Texas Institute for Brain Injury and Repair 

The Texas Institute for Brain Injury and Repair at UT Southwestern Medical Center (TIBIR) is a comprehensive and transformative approach to how brain injuries are prevented and treated. We will draw on our depth of technology advances, innovative research, and exemplary patient care as part of a unique collaboration to enhance the treatment and diagnosis of brain injuries.

Under the guidance of Hunt Batjer, M.D., Chair of Neurological Surgery (on left), Mark Goldberg, M.D., Chair of Neurology and Neurotherapeutics (center), and Kathleen Bell, M.D., Chair of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (right),TIBIR is designed to propel dramatic progress in the understanding and treatment of mild, moderate, and severe brain injuries through high-impact preclinical and clinical research.

The Institute, a component of the Harold and Annette Simmons Comprehensive Center for Research and Treatment in Brain and Neurological Disorders, will explore the full spectrum of brain injuries including strokes and spinal cord injuries with a primary focus on traumatic brain injury using a four-pronged approach:

  • Innovative neuroscience research
  • Clinical translation
  • Education and prevention
  • Comprehensive clinical care
