Acquired Brain Injury (ABI) & Society

The research goal of the Acquired Brain Injury & Society Team is to improve the quality of life of people with acquired brain injury.

The program is structured along the following key research foci:

  • Population based studies, like the Ontario ABI Dataset Project include research on interventions for vulnerable populations and data on brain injury in Local Health Integration Networks within the province of Ontario.
  • Girls & women with ABI
  • TBI in vulnerable populations, including elderly, forensic, and homeless populations
  • Work-related TBI
  • Research based theatre

The research program is built on partnerships with stakeholders including advocacy groups, funders, and students. This research program has been generously supported by the Saunderson Family Chair in Acquired Brain Injury Research at Toronto Rehabilitation Institute, UHN since its establishment in 2003 and a CIHR Chair in Gender, Work, and Health.
