Research Grand Rounds: Silent but not to be neglected: The underestimated effects of injury to the right cerebral hemisphere

Date Fri, Apr 3
Time 12: 00 PM - 1: 00 PM
Location Zoom


This month's Research Grand Rounds features Anna Greenwald, PhD. She will discuss "Silent but not to be neglected: The underestimated effects of injury to the right cerebral hemisphere".

Dr. Greenwald is Assistant Professor of Neurology, a member of the Center for Brain Plasticity and Recovery at Georgetown University and was a recent GHUCCTS KL2 scholar. She leads her Center’s NIH-supported project on Cognition and Emotion after Stroke and is a co-investigator in the multi-institutional Pediatric Stroke project.   Dr. Greenwald uses behavioral and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) methods to investigate human perception, attention, and emotion, their neural basis, and their impairment in neurological disorders. The long-term goal of her research is to develop novel tools for assessing and treating these impairments.

This discipline-spanning, clinical and translational research talk will share her important work advancing our understanding of the clinically-important but understudied impacts of right brain injury.


Research Grand Rounds are sponsored by the Georgetown-Howard Universities Center for Clinical and Translational Science (GHUCCTS) and MedStar Health Research Institute (MHRI) to bring together our diverse clinical and research communities to share impactful new research that spans disciplines and stages of translation to improve individual and community health.

Upcoming Events
Jan 21
The Georgetown University Medical Center (GUMC) Office of the Dean for Research is proud to present the Dean's Seminar Series. This seminar features Peter Tontonoz, MD, PhD, Professor, Pathology & Laboratory Medicine, UCLA Health. Dr. Tontonoz will discuss "New Pathways for Cellular and Systemic Lipid Transport".
This Windows into Translation (WiT) seminar features Jeffrey K. Huang, PhD, Associate Professor in the Department of Biology at the Georgetown University Medical Center. Dr. Huang is also the Deputy Director for the Center for Cell Reprogramming. Dr. Riesenhuber will discuss " Myelin regeneration in multiple sclerosis (MS)".
Jan 22
This month's MHRI-GHUCCTS Monthly Statistical Seminar Series features Dr. Paul Kolm, Associate Director in the Department of Biostatistics and Biomedical Informatics at MedStar Health Research Institute. Dr. Kolm will discuss meta-analysis. Meta-analysis combines the results of several studies to overcome small samples of individual studies and estimate a "true" effect size of some treatment, therapy, etc. There has been a substantial increase in the number of meta-analyses published in the past few years, but many appear to not understand the potential problems of the method and draw incorrect conclusions. We will examine the method, potential problems, and what can and cannot be inferred from the results.
This Duke Clinical Research Institute (DCRI) NIH "Rethinking Clinical Trials" Grand Rounds features Harlan M. Krumholz, MD, SM, Harold H. Hines, Jr. Professor of Medicine and Public Health at Yale University, and Joseph S. Ross, MD, MHS, Professor of Medicine and Public Health at Yale University. Drs. Krumholz and Ross will discuss " Is It Time to Embrace Preprints? A Conversation About the First 18 Months of medRxiv".
