Thomas R. Wood

Dr. Wood’s primary research goal is to investigate the factors that contribute to long-term brain health across the lifespan. Wood focuses on the development of clinically-relevant animal models of developmental brain injury, and uses these models to investigate mechanisms of injury and response to neuroprotective strategies. A significant portion of his research has involved the investigation of treatments for asphyxiated infants in models of hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy (HIE). Ongoing research focuses on the application of promising therapeutics in both ferret models of premature brain injury and rat models of term HIE, as well as investigating biomarkers of injury in clinical and preclinical datasets.


For more information on his research activities please see Thomas Wood's page on the Department of Pediatrics website.
