Research + Pizza - Dr. Steven Kornguth
Speaker: Dr. Steven Kornguth
Head injury in sports has made news lately, with timely concerns emerging in the run-up to this summer’s World Cup, and high-profile stories about injuries in the NFL and the NCAA. From his work with soccer players and TBI diagnostics using imaging and biochemistry, Dr. Steven Kornguth, Senior Research Fellow in the Department of Kinesiology and Health Education, is looking at changes in the brain and blood to develop a set of criteria for identifying persons whose concussions place them at increased risk for long-term brain injury.
