Abstract
Dr. Nicholas Murray is attempting to understand and model the concussion recovery process in student athletes. He discovered that many athletes suffering with concussions were returning to play without full recovery. His research aims toward understanding the long-term effects of concussions along with development of appropriate tools and legislative policies to prevent life-long impairments for all age ranges. The research group headed by Dr. Murray has been funded by the National Institutes of Health and the Department of Defense. His experience at the Institute exposed him to a large group of colleagues who share similar ideas and goals in biomedical research. Many of these individuals have become lifelong friends and research collaborators.
