Graduate student with Dr. Wasif Hussain: Biomarkers in Concussion

Concussion and prolonged recovery from concussion are common yet poorly understood conditions affecting our population. We have started a multidisciplinary clinic to treat patients with acute concussions and follow them until recovery. Through this clinic we aim to study these patients and understand why most patients recover quickly, but others have a prolonged recovery period.

Our study will utilize various biomarkers including metabolomics, proteomics, gut microbiome and autonomic function to better understand these conditions, have a biomarker for diagnosis as well as for prognosis.
