Developing Novel Therapies for Traumatic Brain Injury and Spinal Cord Injury

 

Research Interests

Coleen Atkins, Ph.D.

 

• The research in our laboratory focuses on developing novel therapeutic interventions for traumatic brain injury and spinal cord injury.

• We are identifying the biochemical changes that underlie the pathology in the CNS after trauma using molecular biology, biochemistry, and electrophysiology techniques.

• We are developing therapeutic strategies targeting maladaptive electrophysiological alterations, inflammation, and intracellular biochemical signaling pathways that are dysregulated during chronic traumatic brain injury.

• The ultimate aim of the laboratory is to translate our preclinical studies to the clinic by testing our novel therapeutic interventions validated in the laboratory in chronic TBI survivors.
