Karumbaiah wins IBIA Neurotechnology Award

Neuroprotective ‘glue’ traps cells for healing after brain trauma

Writer: Charlene Betourney

Lohitash Karumbaiah, assistant professor in CAES, was honored with the International Brain Injury Association (IBIA) biennial Early Career Investigator Award, in New Orleans at the 12th World Congress.

The IBIA award recognizes an individual whose work as an early career scientist is contributing importantly to the field of brain injury. According to requirements, the candidate must show that they have made a significant contribution to the field of brain injury, in terms of; therapeutic innovation, peer reviewed publications, presentations and educational teaching contributions.

Karumbaiah was recognized for his work in development of a hydrogel matrix termed as Brain Glue™, with a gel-like consistency similar to Jell-O®, that has the unique ability to take the shape of the void left behind after a severe traumatic brain injury (TBIs).

Karumbaiah is working with RBC Director Steven Stice, on a licensed technology for....
