Summary

  • I am a tenured Professor of Emergency Medicine and Neurology at the University of Rochester. I graduated from Brown University in 1983 and from the University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry in 1987. I'm board certified in Internal Medicine and Emergency Medicine but practiced Emergency Medicine exclusively for 22 years, from 1990 until 2012. In 2010, I joined the University of Rochester Sports Concussion Clinic, providing outpatient concussion care to area high and collegiate athletes. My research is focused on developing neuroimaging and blood-based biomarkers of axonal injury after concussion and repetitive head hits, and on understanding the pathophysiologic mechanisms of recovery. In 2018 I was lead author on a Lancet Neurology publication detailing the results of the multi-national ALERT-TBI trial that was used to support FDA approval for the first blood-based biomarkers of traumatic brain injury in the US.
