Athlete lab picture Large


The Athlete Health and Neuroscience Lab seeks to understand factors that increase risk for protracted recovery after a head injury. Through support from two NJ Commission on Brain Injury Research grants, the lab collected a rich dataset of physical health, injury history, cognitive, cardiovascular, balance, psychological, and substance use information from student athletes. We use advanced statistics to integrate data across domains to identify objective measures for diagnosis and characterize return-to-play timelines. The lab provides opportunities for postdoctoral fellows and early career faculty.
