Reducing the Socioeconomic Costs of Traumatic Brain Injury
We are sorry, this position has been filled.
Location: Engineering Terrace 386A
The Neurotrauma and Repair Laboratory, directed by Professor Barclay Morrison in the department of biomedical engineering, is seeking highly qualified undergraduate students to participate in research projects with the overall goal to reduce the societal costs associated with traumatic brain injury (TBI). Interested students should be proficient in Matlab programming and have experience with sterile technique and tissue culture. Familiarity with compartmental modeling and quantitative physiology is preferred. Specific projects will focus on:
researching the molecular pathophysiology of TBI
developing instrumentation to simulate brain injury
culturing rat brain tissue
electrophysiological measurements and signal processing of neural activity
studying brain injury biomechanics
Students with a minimum 3.0 GPA are invited to apply for research opportunities to explore the molecular, cellular, and functional consequences of TBI.
