Co-located in Rehovot, Israel and Richmond, Va., ImmunArray is a privately funded molecular diagnostics company dedicated to the development of novel blood-based tests that support the diagnosis and management of complex acute and chronic immune and neurodegenerative diseases. The company designs and analyzes sets of biomarkers known to be linked to a particular condition and develops tests on platforms that are most appropriate to facilitate the adoption of additional tests. The company, which introduced its first commercial tests, is currently conducting research in collaboration with leading clinicians and medical centers in the U.S. and Israel. The company was a grant recipient of the GE-NFL Head Health Challenge as well as secured additional corporate research funding to conduct research into the use of biomarkers to identify traumatic brain injury.

The Datalys Center for Sports Injury Research and Prevention is a non-profit 501(c)3 that specializes in the collection and analysis of injury, health outcomes and other types of data from sports organizations and other physically active populations. The Datalys Center was formed by the National Collegiate Athletics Association (NCAA), the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM), and BioCrossroads to further the efforts of researchers, public health officials, policy makers, and the public in the understanding and prevention of injuries. Combined with a unique business model of teaming with external researchers and experts, the Datalys Center is able to assemble, maintain and analyze large datasets cost effectively.
The Federal Interagency Traumatic Brain Injury Research (FITBIR) informatics system was developed to share data across the entire TBI research field and to facilitate collaboration between laboratories, as well as interconnectivity with other informatics platforms. Sharing data, methodologies, and associated tools, rather than summaries or interpretations of this information, can accelerate research progress by allowing re-analysis of data, as well as re-aggregation, integration, and rigorous comparison with other data, tools, and methods. This community-wide sharing requires common data definitions and standards, as well as comprehensive and coherent informatics approaches.
INCF is an international non-profit organization devoted to advancing the field of neuroinformatics.
INCF Community consists of our 17 member countries and associated research groups, consortia, funding agencies and publishers in the field.
The National Nodes are institutions or networks that represent each member country. The nodes are established to coordinate neuroinformatics activity within a country and to provide a connection with the Secretariat. Furthermore, they play an active role in formulating and implementing INCF Programs.
The Secretariat, located in Stockholm Sweden, is the central office of INCF and is responsible for overall scientific and administrative activities. It assists the National Nodes and plays an active role in furthering neuroinformatics through outreach.
The Governing Board is composed of representatives from the member countries and is the means by which the nodes make collective decisions regarding INCF. The European Union is also represented in the Board.
Violence prevention and intervention programs are a powerful way to stop the revolving door of violent injury in our hospitals. Engaging patients in the hospital, during their recovery, is a golden opportunity to change their lives and reduce retaliation and recidivism.
The National Network of Hospital-based Violence Intervention Programs (NNHVIP) brings together the best and most exciting programs to share knowledge, develop best practices, collaborate on research, affect policy change, and more.
Whether you are just thinking about starting a program, a new and emerging program, or have an established program; NNHVIP is here to help you reach your goals. Get in touch today!
