The Center for Neuroscience and Regenerative Medicine (CNRM) is a federal medical research program that has transformed collaborative interactions between the Uniformed Services University, the National Institutes of Health and the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center to improve the understanding of Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).
The CNRM's research is divided into six distinct but complementary programs:
The Uniformed Services University (USU) is the Nation's Federal health sciences university and is committed to excellence in military medicine and public health. USU provides the Nation with health professionals dedicated to career service in the Department of Defense and the United States Public Health Service and with scientists who serve the common good. USU is responsible for the overall operation and management of the CNRM on behalf of the U.S. Department of Defense.
The National Institutes of Health (NIH), a part of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, is the primary Federal agency for conducting and supporting medical research. Helping to lead the way toward important medical discoveries that improve people's health and save lives, NIH scientists investigate ways to prevent disease as well as the causes, treatments, and cures for common and rare diseases.
The The Walter Reed National Military Medical Center is one of the nation's largest and most renowned military medical centers, best known for its history of providing care to war heroes and presidents alike for the past 65 years. People come here to heal, to stay healthy, to help others, to teach the next generation, to practice quality medicine, and take part in cutting-edge clinical research. WRNMMC is the Flagship of Force Health Protection and operational readiness to deliver outstanding customer service; maintain outstanding opportunities in graduate medical and dental education and research; and always deliver world-class health care within an integrated system.
