|Prof. Alon Friedman’s expert research focuses on the early diagnosis and cure for brain injury, including a new drug under development that repairs the blood-brain barrier. Among his team’s accomplishments are new MRI and EEG-based imaging techniques that enable early diagnosis of brain disorders, including Alzheimer’s disease, epilepsy and chronic trauma encephalopathy (CTE)—a progressive degenerative brain disease found in athletes and others and which, until now, could only be diagnosed postmortem. Prof. Friedman, recently led a multidisciplinary study on the “Havana Syndrome”—a mysterious brain injury affecting North American diplomats in Cuba.
