Cellular mechanisms of TBIs

Bioengineers identify the cellular mechanisms of traumatic brain injury

Bioengineers at Harvard have identified, for the very first time, the mechanism for diffuse axonal injury and explained why cerebral vasospasm is more common in blast-induced brain injuries than in brain injuries typically suffered by civilians.

Right now I am finishing up the last of my revisions on my Master's Research Project. It has been a long and arduous journey, but well worth it. Along with my 3D Visualization classmates in BMC, I will be submitting this animation to the AMI Salon next year. Before then, however, I will be presenting this at the Annual Brain Injury Association of Canada Conference in Prince Edward Island this upcoming August. I am eagerly looking forward to this event. Between then and now, there is a whole lot going on. No rest for the aspiring Medical Illustrator!
