In 2018 the University of Michigan Concussion Center (https://concussion.umich.edu) was awarded foundational support through the $150M Biosciences Initiative (https://biosciences.umich.edu/) to establish itself as a global concussion leader. The Concussion Center integrates our research, clinical, and outreach & engagement cores to create novel solutions that advance concussion knowledge and protocols.
We are seeking passionate concussion researchers to help the center by developing and sharing groundbreaking ideas that translate laboratory, clinic, and community observations into knowledge products that reduce concussion risk and improve outcomes in those affected by the injury. All research domains related to concussion will be considered, including candidates that focus on social and cultural health disparities in concussion prevention, identification, and management.
