Manitoba Is Taking a Step Forward To Find Solutions to Traumatic Brain Injuries

Manitoba is a province that values many things, and one of those values is medicine. Medicine plays a massive part in Manitobans’ lives; with every new research, the province is moving forward to the future and is learning more about the unknown.

Research is essential for humans and is significant for upgrading knowledge and moving closer to the answers to all questions. Research is necessary, especially in the medical field. Manitoba has taken the first step to begin new research and its sponsorship.

The University of Manitoba and Manitoba Public Insurance cooperated with the Health Sciences Centre Foundation. It contributed millions of dollars to support traumatic brain injuries and personalized care. “We are again witnessing the power of philanthropy to mobilize a community, advance research, and improve care. Progress in this area has already been made as it relates to building a framework for new drug development, risk reduction by using non-invasive technology, and more. We are thrilled to see what further advancements exist, thanks to the support from MPI and the University of Manitoba.” Said Jonathon Lyon, HSC CEO and Foundation President.

The project is a “world-leading” research, and it is led by Dr. Frederick Zeiler, an HSC Winnipeg Clinician-Scientist, and a Neurotrauma Neurosurgeon. The total amount of money was approximately 3.5 million dollars, and everyone hopes this contribution will help the goal set by HSC Foundation, which is to understand the various recovery ways for TBI patients (Traumatic Brain Injury). The HSC Foundation is looking forward to more people offering their support for this extensive research.
