Friess Lab

Research in our lab is focused on traumatic brain injury (TBI). Specifically we are focused on utilizing clinical relevant animal models of TBI to study the effects of secondary insults (such as intracranial hypertension, systemic hypotension, and systemic hypoxemia) after moderate and severe TBI. By further understanding the effects of secondary insults we hope to develop novel neuroprotective approaches and therapeutics that can improve outcomes following TBI.
