Freeman Laboratory - Department of Surgery
Kalev Freeman is Principal Investigator of the Trauma Physiology Laboratory and Director of Emergency Medicine Research
Our overall goal is to perform novel research that will improve outcomes for patients with brain trauma or other acute injuries.
Ongoing studies are focused on:
1. Effects of traumatic brain injury (TBI) on endothelial Ca2+ signals and vasodilatory function
2. Cerebrovascular endothelium and barrier function in TBI
3. Cognitive therapy and MRI for TBI
Goal: To elucidate the mechanistic basis and functional consequence of changes in vascular physiology following acute brain injury.
Goal: To understand the changes in cerebrovascular endothelial Ca+2 signals, vasodilation, and blood brain barrier permeability after acute brain injury.
Goal: To test the hypothesis that recovery from brain trauma involves neural repair and plasticity, detectable by neuroimaging and enhanced by cognitive therapy.
