ASU, Phoenix Children's Hospital expand biomedical research partnership
Date:2/4/2013

TEMPE, Ariz. -- Research to seek a cure for malignant brain tumors and more precise diagnoses of acute brain injuries will be the focus of collaborations between Arizona State University biomedical engineers and clinician-scientists at the Barrow Neurological Institute at Phoenix Children's Hospital.

The projects are being funded by two $30,000 awards from a seed grant program recently established by Barrow at Phoenix Children's Hospital and the School of Biological and Health Systems Engineering, one of ASU's Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering.

The program's goal is to promote interdisciplinary collaborations between ASU biomedical engineers and clinical faculty at Phoenix Children's Hospital that will target high-priority medical challenges, including but not limited to biomarker discovery and validation for nervous system disorders, development of medical devices and the comparative effectiveness of treatments for neurological and musculoskeletal disorders.

One of the projects will team ASU assistant biomedical engineering professor Sarah Stabenfeldt with Jonathan Lifshitz, director of the Barrow at Phoenix Children's Hospital Translational Neurotrauma Research Program.

The other project will be led by ASU assistant biomedical engineering professor Vikram Kodibagkar and Ratan Bhardwaj, pediatric neurosurgeon at Barrow at Phoenix Children's Hospital.

Stabenfeldt and Lifshitz will explore the complex network of biomolecules called the extracellular matrix that support the structure of the nervous system and its integration with the body's vascular system.

In cases of injury such as traumatic brain injury, the extracurricular matrix could be disturbed and impair neurological function. Their project will uncover the extent of changes the extracellular matrix undergoes after acute brain injury.

They will then correlate the molecular changes with neurological functions, with the intent for changes
