Federal Support

Drs. Eric Ley and Christine Cocanour meet with Rep. Doris Matsui (center), of California’s Congressional delegation.

We ARE gaining momentum. Since 2006, when Senator Kay Bailey Hutchinson (TX) requested funding for NTI that ultimately supported 16 studies across the country, NTI has garnered increasing support for its funding requests from members of Congress.

Without a national home for civilian trauma-related research, such as an NIH for Trauma, NTI’s requests are usually for additional funding within the Department of Defense Health Programs budget for trauma-related research that has military significance.

NTI’s (via CNTR) most recent funding request is for $9.2 million in the Department of Defense Health Program budget for a National Trauma Research Action Plan (NTRAP), as recommended by NASEM in its 2016 report on a National Trauma Care System.
