Partnering With Industry To Develop Point Of Care Diagnostic Tests For Detecting Brain Injury

Join us in welcoming Dr. Damon Kuehl from Carilion Clinic’s Department of Emergency Medicine and the Virginia Tech Carilion School of Medicine.  His focus in research and clinical innovation includes broad interests in practice variation and how physicians make decisions, health care costs, and traumatic brain injury with a specific interest in improving accuracy of diagnosis and prognosis in TBI. He serves on the Scientific Advisory Board for BrainBox Solutions and recently was awarded a 3.5 million dollar NIH NINDS grant to develop point of care diagnostic tests to detect head injury in older adults.  Dr. Kuehl also works with many other start-up companies in translational research projects that improve ED care. He recently started a large project with the VT Helmet lab to develop new technology to improve understanding and detection of falls in older adults.
