The University of New Mexico’s Brain and Behavioral Health Institute (BBHI) has secured a five-year $11.6 million federal grant to find new ways of helping people recover from the catastrophic effects of stroke and traumatic brain injuries. The funding will help establish a new Center for Brain Recovery and Repair that brings together researchers from across the UNM campus to focus on developing new treatments, said BBHI director Bill Shuttleworth, PhD, a Regents’ Professor in the UNM Department of Neurosciences.
