Brain Trauma Blueprint

Resource
The Brain Trauma Blueprint is a roadmap to advance precision diagnostics and therapeutics for survivors of brain trauma by outlining research endeavors and fostering collaboration across the broader stakeholder community.

One pivotal component of CVB’s Blueprint Process is to take a leadership role in bringing together key stakeholders at a State of the Science Summit to survey the current scientific knowledge, identify knowledge gaps, and consider new clinical models and actionable research priorities that will inform funding efforts and accelerate the development of a new generation of precision diagnostics and targeted therapeutics.

After subject-matter experts document the research gaps, we develop an action plan outlining solutions and opportunities to advance research that will bridge the gaps, including needs for funding.

By fostering collaboration across the broader stakeholder community, we will advance solutions for people suffering from trauma-related brain disorders.

2018 State of the Science Summit: Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)

The inaugural State of the Science Summit focused on diagnosis of PTSD. During the summit, thought leaders addressed the issues with defining these disorders by their symptoms and discussed the need to create a new taxonomy of disease for these conditions.

Attendees worked to build consensus around knowledge gaps and discussed strategies to move the field forward. The summit served as a launchpad for ongoing working groups to develop evidence-based strategies on how to fill those gaps, identify new gaps as others are filled, and disseminate these findings back to the community at large.

2019 State of The Science Summit: Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)

Our second State of the Science Summit hosted more than 100 thought leaders to foster consensus around potential paths to treatment for TBI. The goal was to examine the current classification system for TBI diagnosis in order to advance more precise diagnostics. The Summit focused on the chronic effects of TBI and identified the current knowledge gaps in the mechanisms of persistent TBI symptoms.

2022 Brain Trauma Blueprint Action Summit

The inaugural Brain Trauma Blueprint (BTB) Action Summit held on October 18-19th 2022 at the Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center in Washington DC, convened national stakeholder groups across government, academia, foundations, industry, and individuals with lived experience, to plan to execute the TBI Precision Research Roadmap, through collective public and private action. Through the Action Summit, the TBI leadership community developed an action plan with specific priorities that the community must take to achieve solutions sooner for those suffering from trauma-related brain disorders.
