The Center for Neuroscience and Regenerative Medicine (CNRM) was established by Congress to bring together the expertise of physicians and scientists at institutions in the National Capital area to develop new approaches to brain injury diagnosis and recovery. Most of our research takes place at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, MD.
