David Meaney, ph.d.
Associate Director, Penn Center for Brain Injury and Repair
Solomon R. Pollack Professor and Chair, Department of Bioengineering
Dr. Meaney has published extensively on the subject of brain injury. His research focuses on understanding the mechanical cues that regulate injury, repair, and growth in cells and tissues of the central nervous system. Clinical applications of his work include developing new testing standards to improve the safety of headgear and automotive restraint systems, and testing new techniques for repairing damaged tissues in the brain after injury. His honors include the Williams J. Stickel Gold Award, a National Science Foundation CAREER Award, and the YC Fung Young Investigator Award from the American Society of Bioengineering.
