The Kennedy Krieger Institute has a long-standing history of excellence in clinical care and research related to children with acquired brain injury. Over the past 18 years, Kennedy Krieger’s brain injury clinical researchers have published more than 40 peer-reviewed manuscripts related to predicting and measuring outcome in children with brain injury. These research contributions provide answers to the questions that families and providers ask after a child has a brain injury. In 2014, the Brain Injury Clinical Research Center was established to further research efforts in brain injury at Kennedy Krieger.
