Dr. Nikolaos Ziogas receives top finalist award at National Neurotrauma Symposium 2017

Nikolaos Ziogas M.D., postdoctoral fellow at the Koliatsos Laboratory, was recognized as a top finalist at the 35th National Neurotrauma Society’s Annual Symposium, Snowbird, Utah for his work “Primary traumatic axonopathy after impact acceleration: characterization of pathology with 3D high-resolution methods”. The combination of brain clearing with 2-photon microscopy to 3D reconstruct the mouse brain stem, allowed for the first time a new level of qualitative and quantitative understanding of axonal injury, including its progressive nature and its proclivity for sites of geometrical complexity and intertwinement of various axon tracts after traumatic brain injury.
