Astrocyte’s Dr. James Lechleiter to Present at 2015 TBI Conference

The 5th AnnuTBI 2015 Masthead logoal Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) Conference is being held on April 15 and 16, 2015 in Washington DC. The conference will feature the latest research findings from many leading TBI researchers in the areas of neurotrauma, PTSD and concussion and presents an excellent opportunity to hear the latest updates in TBI. Dr. James Lechleiter, Astrocyte Pharmaceuticals’ Co-Founder and Professor of Cellular and Structural Biology at UTHSCSA, was invited to present his latest progress in brain trauma research.

Dr. Lechleiter will present data from a new mouse model of repetitive TBI, which exhibits long-term (12-18 months) neurological deficits. His presentation – “Targeting Astrocyte Mitochondrial ATP Production after Repetitive TBI Prevents Long-Term Neurological Deficits in Mice” – goes beyond describing the previously reported short-term benefits and highlights the long-term benefits of this novel therapeutic approach.
