The Glasgow Brain Injury Research Group

The Glasgow Brain Injury Research Group (GBIRG) is based in the Laboratory Medicine building at the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital, Glasgow.

Led by Dr Willie Stewart, our group is engaged in studies investigating the biology and pathology of traumatic brain injury (TBI). Our research describes the range of pathologies that occur in people exposed to varying severities of injury from repetitive mild TBI ( eg after  a career in football, rugby or boxing) to single moderate or severe TBI (such as after an assault or car accident). 

Many of our current projects are directed towards understanding the link between TBI and increased risk of dementia, and the characteristics of the pathology  of survival from TBI, known as chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE).
