Last year, a new initiative was launched to support projects generated and executed by task forces of the Brain Injury Interdisciplinary Special Interest Group (BI-ISIG). When sufficient funds are available, the BI-ISIG Executive Committee will select and award 12-month Task Force Development Grants through a competitive process. Each project team includes at least one Early Career member. Congratulations to the inaugural awardees of this program!
