Traumatic brain injury (TBI) results in unparalleled structural damage ranging from molecular to organ levels; and followed by widespread dysfunctions including maladaptive activation and/or dysregulation of endogenous injury- response mechanisms. Our long-term goal is to characterize the molecular mechanisms that modulate progressive brain neurodegeneration and associated neurological impairments after TBI. Veterans are a distinct group of brain trauma patients because military TBI features spe...
