TIRR founded Mission Connect, which is a collaborative neurotrauma research project created to translate scientific knowledge from research, into pioneering medical treatments to help people who have sustained a neurological injury.
The project is an integral part of TIRR’s goal to support research programs and advancements in rehabilitative medicine and educational programs that will improve the quality of life for people with neurological damage.
