Robin Green

Dr. Robin Green is a Canada Research Chair (II) in traumatic brain injury. She is a Senior Scientist, co-lead of the Schroeder Brain Institute and head of the Brain Discovery & Recovery Team at Toronto Rehab. She is also an Associate professor in the department of Psychiatry at the University of Toronto. Her program of research addresses brain and behavioural mechanisms of recovery from moderate-severe traumatic brain injury (TBI). Her lab has re-conceptualized TBI as a chronic and possibly neurodegenerative disease process; this novel conception is needed in order to identify parallels with other forms of neurodegeneration, which will offer new avenues of treatment. Dr. Green is currently engaged in the development of interventions to mitigate the accelerated aging that is observed in the later stages of TBI by targeting modifiable mechanisms. She recently founded a provincial research centre for people with enduring effects of brain injuries/concussion, which provides clinical care remotely to patients across Ontario.
