MRRI maintains an active Scientific Advisory Board composed of diverse experts in relevant areas of neuroscience, neurorehabilitation, and research strategy. This Board provides valuable feedback on MRRI’s scientific research, as well as the Institute’s operations. This month, MRRI is excited to welcome two new members to the Scientific Advisory Board. Jennifer Bogner, PhD, ABPP, FACRM, from The Ohio State University and Lewis Wheaton, PhD, from Georgia Tech have recently accepted their invitations to join the Board, bringing the total number of Board Members up to seven.
Dr. Bogner has over 30 years of experience conducting research on traumatic brain injury. Her work has examined behavioral and emotional regulation, substance misuse, community participation, the long-term effects of traumatic brain injury, and factors that influence patient outcomes after rehabilitation. Dr. Wheaton’s research over the past two decades has investigated motor planning and motor control, apraxia, and the mechanisms of motor recovery in people with limb amputations, stroke, and other central nervous system injuries.
Their respective scientific strengths and unique perspectives will enrich the discussions during MRRI’s Scientific Advisory Board meetings, and the Institute looks forward to working with them to continue advancing the mission of MRRI.
