I am interested in the function of the blood-brain and blood-cerebrospinal fluid barriers in the context of brain injury and aging. Traumatic brain injury is the leading cause of death of young Americans, but the incidence of brain injury is also high in the elderly. In my laboratory, we investigate how neuropeptides, growth factors, and cytokines affect the function of brain barriers in the injured central nervous system, and how these changes in the barriers' function depend on age.

I was born in Warsaw, Poland and received a Master's Degree in biomedical engineering from the Polytechnic University in Warsaw. I continued with doctorate studies at the Medical School of Warsaw where I received a Ph.D. in neuroscience. I then pursued post-doctoral training at the Howard Florey Institute of Experimental Physiology and Medicine in Melbourne, Australia. I joined the faculty of Brown University Medical School in 1995. I am currently an Associate Professor in the Department of Emergency Medicine.
