Frequently Asked Questions

About Us

Where is CNRM located?

While our administrative offices are located in Rockville, MD, our studies take place at medical centers and military treatment facilities all over the Washington, DC metro area.

Who can I contact?

When you call, e-mail, send us a Facebook message or a Tweet, you are contacting the CNRM study volunteer recruiters. We are here to direct you to the appropriate doctor. We can answer questions about CNRM, about specific studies, and about research participation in general.

When you enroll in a study, the doctors and staff in charge will give you their contact information, and you can feel free to call or email them directly at any time with any questions or concerns.

About TBI and PTSD

I think I have TBI or PTSD. What should I do?

While we provide some basic information on this site about TBI and PTSD and their symptoms, it does not replace the evaluation by a qualified medical professional. Talk to your personal doctor about your concerns.

How can I help my loved one recover from TBI?

You are already on the right track. Becoming informed about the condition is the first step in helping to support his/her recovery. Share this website with your loved one and discuss the possibility of taking part in research. We can all help future TBI survivors by advancing knowledge of diagnosis and recovery. For more information, please visit our Links and Resources page.

How can I explain TBI or PTSD to my child?

Sesame Street's Talk, Listen, Connect project is a great resource for parents.

About Research

What are my rights as a research participant?

As a research participant, you have a number of rights. First and foremost, you have the right to make an informed decision about taking part in a study. Before you enroll in a study, the doctor will explain the research to you, including the risks and benefits. If you decide to take part, you may still change your mind and withdraw, at any time and for any reason. To learn more about your rights, visit the Center for Information and Study on Clinical Research Participation.

About a Specific Study

How long will the study take? How will this study help? Where will the study take place? How will I benefit from participation? Who else may benefit from my participation in research?

These are all very good questions, and you should have them answered before enrolling in any study. We have studies that are as short as a few days, and as long as a few years. Some of our studies are treatment studies, which may improve your condition. Other studies are screening or observational, which will advance our knowledge of the condition, but may not benefit you directly. Our studies take place at medical centers and military treatment facilities all over the DC metro area. To learn more about a specific study, contact us today by phone, e-mail, Facebook, or Twitter.
