The CTSI Seminar Series for Spring 2014 continues on Tuesday, February 18th with a presentation by Jeffrey Bazarian, MD, MPH, Eric Blackman, PhD, and Jianhui Zhong, PhD. Drs. Bazarian, Blackman and Zhong will be presenting their research in a seminar entitled “A multidisciplinary effort toward identifying and mitigating closed-head brain injury.” Traumatic brain injury, especially as it relates to sports such as football, has been a frequent topic in health news as of late. Drs. Bazarian, Blackman and Zhong were all authors on the article “Consequences of repeated blood-brain barrier disruption in football players.” You can watch Dr. Bazarian talk about his research in a series of videos found here.
The theme of the Spring 2014 series is “Crossing Elmwood: River Campus-Medical Center Research Collaborations” and will showcase ongoing research collaborations between the University research community and the Medical Center. The series also aims to stimulate new research teams and areas of investigation capitalizing on the existing strength of faculty and programs. The Organizing Committee for the series includes Robert Holloway, MD, MPH, Peter Lennie, PhD, Rob Clark, PhD, Stephen Dewhurst, PhD, Karl Kieburtz, MD, MPH, David Williams, PhD, Richard Waugh, PhD, and Joanna Olmsted, PhD.
