CBI Faculty Spotlight
Lisa Jordan, PhD
I came to OSU to take science courses in preparation of moving into a teacher training program, and ended up in the Department of Preventive Medicine/School of Public Health (now College of Public Health), and got a Masters and PhD trained as an epidemiologist. When I finished my PhD, I began working in the Biostatistics Program/College of Optometry before transitioning to the College of Optometry full time.
What do you study, and why?
My current research in concussion is a NEI-sponsored planning grant to prove feasibility for a large-scale observational study of vision issues following concussion in kids. Anecdotally eye care providers find kids coming in with unresolved vision issues months following concussion, but there is not good data assessing how often this occurs and what kind of issues there are.
What should people know about your research?
Concerns about the impact of these problems on school functioning are a real issue, and efforts to try and develop a treatment plan suffer from a lack of natural history data on these kids. We are working on developing the collaborations with our front-line medical providers to recruit these kids as soon after concussion as possible, to prove we are able to recruit them, and to develop a protocol for a large-scale natural history study.
What do you like to do in your free time?
Free time activities revolve around my 11-year old daughter's activities, with quilting thrown in around the edges.
How awesome is this work coming out of another #OhioStateCBI lab? 🐷 The Vonder Haar lab has been developing a touchscreen that can be implemented for testing cognition in pigs ➡️ the impact for #TBI research could be vast! https://t.co/rLc1iU0aF7
ICYMI: We awarded @Cquatmanyates an Action Potential Grant (APG), for her project “Health-enhancing active lifestyle intervention to promote optimal #aging, #health and function (HEAL-CBI)”.
