Kessler Foundation neuroscientist Jordan Grafman receives Humboldt Research Award
Date:12/19/2011

West Orange, NJ. December 19, 2011. Jordan Grafman, PhD, director of traumatic brain injury research at Kessler Foundation, has received a Humboldt Research Award from the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation. This prestigious award encourages collaborative research between German scientists and renowned investigators like Dr. Grafman, who specializes in the study of the human prefrontal cortex and cognitive neuroplasticity.

"We are pleased to announce this award recognizing the relevance of Dr. Grafman's research to the international scientific community," said Rodger DeRose, president and CEO of Kessler Foundation.

The Humboldt award acknowledges the lifetime achievements of scientists whose research endeavors have significantly advanced knowledge and understanding of their disciplines. Dr. Grafman's investigation of brain function and behavior contributes to advances in medicine, rehabilitation, and psychology, and informs ethics, law, philosophy, and health policy. He is acknowledged as the leading expert in the long-term sequelae of penetrating brain injury in military personnel.

In January 2010, Dr. Grafman assumed his current position at Kessler Foundation, where he is exploring how genetics can contribute to more tailored and effective interventions for cognitive rehabilitation after brain injury. "It's important to continue to explore the relationship between genetics and outcomes after traumatic brain injury," noted Dr. Grafman. "Links between genetics and behavioral changes like aggression, have already been identified."

Kessler Foundation plans to open a new neural imaging center in 2013. "This will greatly advance our capabilities for cognitive research in brain injury," said DeRose, "as well as in stroke and multiple sclerosis.

Dr. Grafman has more than 30 years of experience in neuroscience research, including leadership positions at the National Institutes of Health and the Vietnam Head Inju
