The Center on Brain Injury Research and Training
CBIRT, a center under the Office of the Vice President for Research and Innovation at the University of Oregon, conducts research and training to improve the lives of children and adults with traumatic brain injury (TBI). CBIRT’s research focuses on developing interventions to improve outcomes related to education, employability, and quality of life. Our training activities promote the use of best practices among educators and other professionals who serve individuals with TBI.
Partners in these endeavors include individuals with TBI, family members, educators and other professionals who serve individuals with TBI, hospitals, and research colleagues throughout the United States and beyond.
CBIRT was established at the UO in 2013 as a center whose primary mission is research and training in evidence-based supports for individuals with traumatic brain injury (TBI).
A major focus of CBIRT’s work has been in professional development for educators who work with students with TBI. Lack of awareness contributes to many of the challenges of serving students with TBI.
CBIRT is viewed nationally and internationally as a respected source for information, resources, and evidence-based practices on brain injury for researchers, educators, families, and individuals with TBI.
