A U of I pre-med student is researching brain health in veterans

Fifth year pre-med student Elizabeth Spurlock conducts research with Aaron Anderson, the assistant director of the Biomedical Imaging Center, on the brain health of those who have served in the military. Veterans are disproportionately affected by traumatic brain injuries.

The research is a collaboration between Beckman Institute and the Chez Veterans Center at U of I.
