"Neuronal Dysfunction in Brain Slice Cultures after Concussion"
Barclay Morrison III, Ph.D.
Professor, Department of Biomedical Engineering
Vice Dean of Undergraduate Programs, FU
Foundation School of Engineering and Applied Science
Barclay Morrison, PhD. is professor of Biomedical Engineering, director of the Neurotrauma and Repair Laboratory, and serves as Vice Dean of Undergraduate Programs for the Engineering School at Columbia University. His research focuses on the biomechanics of traumatic brain injury (TBI) at the tissue level to better prevent brain injuries, and on the cellular pathways responsible for post-traumatic cell dysfunction in the search for novel therapies. He currently serves as a council member and President of the International Research Council on Biomechanics of Injury, is a board member of Football Research Inc., and is on the editorial board of the Journal of Neurotrauma and Brain Multiphysics. He received his BS in biomedical engineering from Johns Hopkins University, his PhD in bioengineering from the University of Pennsylvania, and continued his academic training as a post-doctoral fellow in Clinical Neurosciences at Southampton University, UK before joining the faculty of Columbia University in 2003. Morrison is past recipient of the Rickard Skalak Best Paper Award given by the American Society for Mechanical Engineers for a publication in the Journal of Biomechanical Engineering and the John Paul Stapp Award for the best paper in the Stapp Car Crash Journal. In 2006, he was the recipient of the Kim Award for Student-Faculty Involvement from Columbia Engineering, and in 2019, he was the recipient of the Great Teacher Award from the Society of Columbia Graduates.
