In Canada, at least 300,000 concussions occur each year. Co-led by Dr. Keith Yeates and Dr. Carolyn Emery, the university's Integrated Concussion Research Program works with the Alberta Children’s Hospital Research Institute and the Hotchkiss Brain Institute in the Cumming School of Medicine, the Faculty of Kinesiology, and the Department of Psychology in the Faculty of Arts to address concussion and other forms of mild traumatic brain injury. The team holds major grants from CIHR and other funding agencies for concussion research. The ICRP representative to the HBI Strategic Research and Innovation Committee is Dr. Chantel Debert.
