Stem cell research continues to yield exciting possibilities for individuals with severe injuries and disorders. Recently, the University of Texas has approved a study that will address stem cell treatment for children with traumatic brain injuries.

Currently, our only means of treating a brain injury is by prevention, but if we can offer some means of repairing damaged brain tissue, we could well be on our way to diminishing the awful conditions faced by many survivors today.
