As awareness increases about the risk of traumatic brain injury while playing contact sports and the possible long-term health impacts, we talk to Dorothy Kozlowski, a professor of biological sciences at DePaul University whose research focuses on understanding and treating the injured brain.

Kozlowski will speak at a Chicago Council on Science & Technology panel discussion on sports and brain injuries on Wednesday, May 13 at 6:00 pm. View her presentation on the topic:
