Victorian Neurotrauma Initiative - a research program of the TAC
Up until May 2011, the TAC funded research projects in traumatic brain and spinal cord injury through the Victorian Neurotrauma Initiative (VNI). The research was conducted in basic, clinical and rehabilitation disciplines to fill the gaps in neurotrauma research in Victoria.
To ensure that only the highest quality, internationally competitive neurotrauma research were funded, each application went through a rigorous peer and scientific review process. This review process was tailored for each funding round and was directed by the previous VNI governance committees. By selecting and funding only high quality research the TAC created a centre of neurotrauma research excellence within Victoria.
Details of all projects, including project summaries, are available below:
- Spinal cord injury projects
- Traumatic brain injury projects
- Targeted initiatives
- Capacity building initiatives
- Fellowships and awards
The Victorian Neurotrauma Initiative (VNI) Pty Ltd ceased as a company as of close of business on Monday, 30 May 2011. Since then a substantial program of neurotrauma research has been managed for the TAC by the Institute for Safety, Compensation and Recovery Research (ISCRR).
