Our keynote speaker is Jessica Gill, PhD, RN. She is an investigator at the National Institutes of Health and co-director of the biomarkers core for the Center for Neurosciences and Regenerative Medicine. Her work examines biological mechanisms of traumatic brain injury and related co-morbidities including post-traumatic stress disorder, post-concussive disorder, depression and neurological deficits. Her research focus is to use biomarkers to better understand the mechanisms that contribute to poor recovery from brain injuries and to design novel interventions to improve recovery. Dr. Gill is a Lasker Clinical Research Scholar at the National Institute of Nursing Research (NINR) and leads biomarker studies across the country to improve the health and well being of athletes, military personnel and civilians who sustain brain injuries. Previously, she was an assistant professor at the George Mason University School of Nursing. She completed a post-doctorate fellowship at NINR in conjunction with the National Institute of Mental Health. Dr. Gill is the recipient of the Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers (PECASE), the highest honor bestowed by the United States government on outstanding scientists and engineers in the early stages of their independent research careers. Her keynote presentation will also be webcast live.
