WeilLabImageRTFThe Weil Lab at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center is focused on understanding the basic biology and long-term consequences of traumatic brain injuries.

Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a serious public health issue costing Americans over 75 billion dollars annually in healthcare costs and lost productivity. One prominent feature of TBI is that injuries make future injuries more likely and more devastating. Our lab is interested in understanding the molecular and biochemical basis of this phenomenon. Being part of the neurological institute has enabled interdisciplinary collaboration with physicians and researchers dedicated to improving the lives of patients with TBI.

Zachary Weil, PhD

Assistant Professor, Department of Neuroscience; Laboratory Director

The Weil Laboratory focuses on understanding the basic biology and long-term consequences of traumatic brain injuries (TBI). They study the molecular and biochemical basis of why TBIs make future injuries more likely and more devastating. Dr. Weil is interested in how environmental and temporal variables can interact with the immune, autonomic and neuroendocrine systems to control physiology and behavior. He is also interested in understanding how environmental variables can render organisms differentially susceptible to nervous system injuries.
