The Galveston Brain Injury Conference (GBIC) (2001-2020) was sponsored by the Moody Neurorehabilitation Institute in Galveston and the Center for Recovery, Physical Activity, and Nutrition in the School of Health Professions at UTMB. The Robert L. Moody Prize for Distinguished Initiatives in Brain Injury Research and Rehabilitation was awarded at the conferences annually.
GBIC began in 2001 as a follow-up to a 1999 NIH Consensus Conference on
Brain Injury Research. National and international leaders in the field of brain injury research are invited to attend. This Gordon-style conference became a premier annual event in the field of brain
injury, attracting investigators, educators, and clinicians from across
North America. Various research topics in traumatic brain injury were discussed.
