Dr. Kummer is an Assistant Professor of Neurology at Washington University School of Medicine and at the St. Louis VA Medical Center, a clinical neurointensivist, and the Director of the Neurotrauma ICU at Barnes Jewish Hospital. His research focuses on identifying and measuring key loci of cellular damage in traumatic brain injury and Alzheimer's disease, and seeking factors that explain the connections between these conditions. He is particularly interested in developing tools that help to unravel the complex neural networks that give rise to behavior and lead to neurological disability when injured, and on translational technologies that connect lab-based science with patients in the physiology laboratory of the intensive care unit. Dr. Kummer received his MD and PhD from Washington University in St. Louis and completed clinical training in Neurology and Neurocritical Care at Harvard Medical School.
