Biomarkers are changing the way we approach and deliver care for Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI). Biological molecules indicating a specific process, biomarkers can help scientists study the mechanisms behind TBI, learn more about divergent responses to TBIs in different populations, and better predict patient reactions.

In this presentation, Jessica Gill, Ph.D., will discuss recent findings about the diagnosis of brain injuries, the identification of biomarkers that shape recovery in acute patients and athletes, and more. We'll learn about chronic symptoms in Veterans and civilians, and how biomarkers may relate to neuronal vulnerability that contributes to onset and maintenance of symptoms. We'll even learn about recent studies showing how sweat can be used as a biomarker in a community setting.

ABOUT Jessica Gill, PhD, RN
Bloomberg Distinguished Professor, School of Medicine and School of Nursing

Jessica Gill is a national leader in research on the biological mechanisms of traumatic brain injuries (TBI). She has spent decades investigating differential responses in military personnel, athletes, and other patients that have experienced TBIs and the mechanisms underlying these divergent responses. Specifically, Dr. Gill looks for ways to use biomarkers to identify which patients are at high risk for poor recovery and long-term effects including post-traumatic stress disorder, depression, and post-concussive syndrome, and to develop treatments. As Bloomberg Distinguished Professor of Trauma Recovery Biomarkers, she will hold primary appointments in the Johns Hopkins School of Nursing and the School of Medicine, Department of Neurology.
