The Chuck Noll Foundation For Brain Injury Research Announces 2019 Research Grants

The Chuck Noll Foundation for Brain Injury Research has awarded four new grants to research teams from the University of Pittsburgh, University of Pittsburgh Medical Center and the West Virginia University's
Rockefeller Neuroscience Institute. The Foundations' Board of Directors approved grants totaling $725,000.

The grants will support the research conducted by renowned scientists committed to finding the causes of, and best treatments for, traumatic brain injury.

Visit the Foundation Website for a list of the grants along with the names of the research team members and a description of the research.

The Chuck Noll Foundation was established in December 2016 through a seed grant from the Pittsburgh Steelers. Chuck Noll, for whom the Foundation is named, was the beloved head coach of the Pittsburgh Steelers from 1969-1991, earning four Super Bowl titles during his tenure. His career culminated with his induction into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1993. Noll's commitment to the well-being of his players ultimately led the Steelers to initiate the start up of the Foundation in Chuck Noll's name.
