Neuroscience Graduate Program - Student Profile

Adewole Oyalowo

Student Profile

My primary research interest is centered on the development of neurotechnology for advanced diagnostics, prognostics, and therapeutics following traumatic brain injury (TBI).

During my undergraduate education, I spent considerable time detailing health and safety issues affecting former NFL players and characterizing the academic cost of a concussion in a collegiate setting. With a better understanding of the public health implications following TBI, I sought a more fundamental level of knowledge from the perspective of experimental neuroscience. In the following years, I learned
1) to employ wet lab and experimental techniques for investigating blast-induced and impact-induced TBI (Pamela VandeVord, MS, PhD; Virginia Tech);
2) to identify biomarkers and potential mechanisms of dysfunction using genomic and proteomic approaches (Jessica Gill, RN, PhD; NIH/NINR); and
3) to consider the role of the immune system in persistent dysfunction following TBI (Dorian McGavern, PhD; NIH/NINDS).
