Leadership

Scientific direction and ethical stewardship of The TED Initiative is provided by committees of TBI experts. The Executive Committee is comprised of TED PI/Co-PIs who make and execute final decisions as to research priorities, supervise execution of studies, ensure sound fiscal management, and monitor data quality and progress toward completion of the project aims.

The Steering Committee is charged with the overall scientific direction of the project. Membership of the Steering Committee is comprised of Co-PIs and selected consultants.

The Government Steering Committee, constituted under the foundational direction of Colonel Dallas Hack, is now under the direction of Tammy Crowder, PhD with core support from Christie Vu, PhD. Its membership is comprised of Armed Forces medical and scientific personnel with research and clinical expertise in neurotrauma, as well as representatives from FDA and industry.
