    The Defense and Veteran’s Brain Injury Center (DVBIC) provides research and support for treating service members with traumatic brain injuries (TBI). DVBIC shared key aspects of its mission and emphasized its importance during a presentation to scientists and potential partners in their work to combat TBI.

    Standing before a select group of scientists and support staff at the National Cancer Institute at Frederick, Deputy Director for DVBIC Katherine Helmick spoke in blunt, immediate terms.

    "We need to be doing more, faster," said Helmick during a lunchtime workshop. "Now is truly the time for action."
