Description: NIH Director's Seminar Series

Dr. Gill is a nurse researcher within the National Institutes of Nursing Research (NINR), and will present data on studies that link biomarkers to recovery from traumatic brain injuries (TBIs), and place individuals at higher risk to develop long-term behavioral and neurological symptoms. The impact of repeated TBIs, as well as blast and sub-concussive hits on neurological recovery will also be presented. Studies from Dr. Gill’s Tissue Injury Branch include samples of military personnel and veterans, civilians recruited from emergency rooms, and athletes within the National Collegiate Athlete Association. Dr. Gill's laboratory has developed methods to measure biomarker proteins in blood as well as in neuronally derived exosomes that are measured using ultrasensitive methods, which provide fundamental insights into both the mechanisms of recovery from brain injury, as well as biomarkers that contribute to lasting symptoms.
