(From the December 2013 issue of Research Now)
Understanding the mechanisms of perinatal brain injury may help identify potential therapeutic targets. Because of the importance of collaborative, translational science to achieving these goals and improving neurodevelopmental outcomes for babies, investigators in the Center for Perinatal Research and The Ohio State University, led by Dr. Amanda Graf, have formed the Perinatal Brain Injury and Development Group. This group meets regularly and serves as a community for presenting and discussing research ideas, supporting investigators, and identifying opportunities for collaboration.
The next meeting will be held Wednesday, January 22 from noon-1pm in RBIII room WB 1050. Jonathan Godbout, associate professor from The Ohio State University College of Medicine will be the speaker.
