In October, PANTHER researchers met in Madison, WI to discuss what steps to take next in pursuit of understanding, detecting and preventing traumatic brain injuries. We outlined projects that will lead to breakthrough through application of PANTHER’s multi-scale computational modeling and experimentation.
The workshop was attended by 24 people from 5 universities, 2 companies and one national lab. Researchers shared finite element and algorithmic results that support the hypothesis that angular velocity is highly correlated with mTBI. As a result of this workshop, we outlined 8 collaborative projects that will guide improvements in helmets, medical treatments and other preventing and mitigating strategies.
