Jacob Resch -Sport-related concussion

Science & Engineering
Supervising Faculty Member: 
Jacob Resch
Research Focus: 

Currently, a gold-standard for the diagnosis of sport-related concussion does not exist. The goal of my research is to identify a time and cost effective theranostic measure (e.g. computerized, biomarker(s) or other clinical tools) of sport-related concussion that will translate to non-athlete (e.g. military and civilian populations).

Position Description: 

Students will be required to participate in a weekly journal club to discuss current topics related to concussion. The successful applicant will work together with other undergraduate, graduate, and doctoral students in the day-to-day lab operations as well as assist with a variety of currently existing research protocols.

Required Skills: 

Students must complete CITI training. Although a statistical background is preferred but not required. Finally, students should have strong interpersonal skills as they will routinely work with research personnel, clinicians and study participants.

Computer software: 
CITI training is required.
What will you learn: 

1) Students will gain an in depth knowledge of sport-related concussion
2) Students will gain an appreciation for clinical research
3) Students will become well-versed in data collection, analysis and interpretation

My area of expertise is sport-related concussion. More specifically, I investigate current and novel computerized and physiological measures of sport-related concussion in young and adult athletes.
