In 2019, Dr Adam Edwards completed his PhD at the Perron Institute with Professors Bruno Meloni and Neville Knuckey where he used preclinical models to investigate the role of a novel peptide in preventing a form of brain injury that affects newborn infants. As a postdoctoral researcher, Adam has maintained an active interest in all aspects of infant brain injury, where he continues to investigate further applications of the peptide from his PhD as well as developing new MRI techniques to diagnose acute and chronic infant brain injury.
