CNS injuries such as traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury and stroke are complex, multifaceted disorders. This complexity poses a challenge for discovery, translation and precision medicine. I will review recent work from our team demonstrating the value of applied data science (data sharing/machine intelligence/analytics) for driving bench-to-bedside translation and clinical implementation of CNS injury research.
