Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a common and often devastating health problem. Affecting over 2.5M individuals in the US each year, TBI is a complex and heterogenous disorder. Using novel and translational approaches we aim to further understand the detrimental acute and evolving neuropathologies of TBI, including mechanisms of white matter degeneration and pathological permeability of the blood brain barrier.
POST-DOCTORAL RESEARCHER: We seek a highly motivated post-doctoral fellow to investigate the mechanisms driving both acute and chronic outcomes following traumatic brain injury (TBI). See Open Positions tab for more details
Congratulations to John Arena on the acceptance of his paper “Tau immunophenotypes in chronic traumatic encephalopathy recapitulate those of ageing and Alzheimer's disease” in Brain!
Congratulations to John Arena who won the Michael Goldberger Award at the National Neurotrauma Symposium 2019 - the number 1 ranked poster presentation for the symposium. His work was titled “A New Understanding of the Phenotype and Distribution of Tau Pathology in Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy”
