Bhooma Aravamuthan, MD, DPhil
The Aravamuthan lab’s translational research spans animal and patient-based studies to better diagnose, predict and understand the causes of dystonia following neonatal brain injury.
Rajat Dhar, MD, FRCPC
The Dhar lab seeks to leverage data and image-driven approaches to understand the heterogeneity of human responses to severe brain injuries.
Michael N. Diringer, MD
All NNICU physicians have specialized research interests directed at improving the care we provide our patients. A unique aspect of this facility is that it is the only Neuro-ICU in the country with a positron emission tomography (PET) scanner located on site.
Nico U.F. Dosenbach, MD, PhD
Plasticity is one of the hallmark features of the human brain. Use-driven plasticity is critically important for typical development as well as recovering from brain injury. Thus, the overarching goal of our research is to better understand use-driven brain plasticity.
Terrance T. Kummer, MD, PhD
Research at the Kummer lab and in our collaborative group is focused on the mechanisms of cellular damage in traumatic brain injury (TBI) and in Alzheimer’s disease, with a particular focus on synaptic and other forms of gray matter injury. TBI is a major cause of morbidity and mortality in the U.S. and worldwide and a major risk factor for the development of Alzheimer’s disease.
Jeffrey J. Neil, MD, PhD
Our research group is focused on application of magnetic resonance methods to obtain a better understanding of brain injury.
