Jeffrey Bazarian, MD

Professor of Emergency Medicine, Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation Neurology, Neurosurgery, and Public Health Science
University of Rochester Medical Center

Dr. Bazarian is a tenured Professor of Emergency Medicine, Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation Neurology, Neurosurgery, and Public Health Science. He has served as the lead investigator on projects to determine the epidemiology and outcome of mild TBI (K23 from NINDS), to image with DTI axonal injury acutely after mild TBI (R01 from NICHS), to determine the role of serum S100B in the diagnosis of intracranial hemorrhage after mild TBI (New York State Department of Health), and to validate new putative markers of axonal injury after sports-related concussion (K24 NICHD). He was most recently the PI on a study using diffusion tensor imaging and football helmet impact sensors to investigate the natural history of white matter damage after multiple sub-concussive head blows. Dr. Bazarian received his BA in Biology from Brown University and graduated from the University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry. He completed his residency in Internal Medicine at University of Rochester Medical Center where he also obtained a MPH in Clinical Investigation. Dr. Bazarian has served on several TBI-related task forces and panels for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the National Institutes of Health, the National Science Foundation, and the Institute of Medicine. In 2010, Dr. Bazarian joined the University of Rochester Sports Concussion Clinic, providing outpatient concussion care to area high-school and collegiate athletes.
