Since completing my medical training, I have become progressively more involved in projects and writings designed to either further our understanding of clinical problems as they pertain to acute brain injury and assess novel interventions pertaining to them. I have recognized the value of exploring interventions for chronic, co-morbid conditions with complex relationships to a history of TBI, such as depression and neurodegenerative diseases such as CTE, Alzheimer’s and vascular dementia.
