Raymond J. Grill
Raymond J. Grill received his Ph.D. degree in anatomy and cellular biology from the University of Cincinnati, Ohio, USA, in 1995. Grill performed his postdoctoral studies within the Laboratory of Mark Tuszynski. He obtained an M.D. degree and a Ph.D. degree at the Neurosciences Department, University of California, San Diego, USA, from 1995 to 1999. The focus of his work was the application of ex vivo-delivered trophic factors to promote regeneration and recovery of function in both acute and chronic models of spinal cord injury. Grill became an Assistant Professor at the Department of Neurosurgery at the University of Texas Health Science Center in 1999, where he has continued to work in the spinal cord injury field. The current focus of the Grill Lab is on how inflammatory processes shape spinal pathology following trauma during both acute and chronic time periods. In addition, Grill’s Laboratory is also exploring the concept of drug treatment resistance in animal models of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. Finally, his lab is also exploring acute and chronic contributions of inflammation to outcome following traumatic brain injury.
