Irish Concussion Research Centre (ICRC)

Investigating concussion management, education and reduction strategies

GMIT - Irish Concussion Research Centre (ICRC)

The Irish Concussion Research Centre (ICRC) is part of the School of Science and Computing at Galway-Mayo Institute of Technology's Galway campus.

At the ICRC, our staff and research students are working to:

  • Develop education and awareness programmes which offer a more comprehensive understanding of concussion, mTBI and CTE
  • Deliver concussion management and recovery methodologies (e.g. neuroscience) by examining concussion risk reduction measures across sports
  • Influence participants in sport at all levels, from amateur to elite, and those who manage sports activity, such as coaches, medics, parents, and administrators

A priority area for the ICRC is developing concussion management and education strategies.

These strategies will enhance the treatment of each individual who experiences a concussion through sport or recreational activity.
