Terrance T. Kummer, MD, PhD

Associate Professor of Neurology

Washington University in St. Louis (WU)

My research program is focused on understanding the mechanisms underlying neuronal trauma and degeneration during and following acute brain injury.  I am particularly interested in intracerebral hemorrhage and traumatic brain injury, two major causes of death and disability that together span the age spectrum.  My work is carried out in the neurological intensive care unit, where I am an attending physician, and in the laboratory.  I am focused on the development and application of invasive and non-invasive neuromonitoring techniques, especially cerebral microdialysis and advanced MRI technologies.
