Dr. Cherisse Berry: Recipient of the 2016 EAST Trauma Research Scholarship

Cherisse Berry, MD

R Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center


As a young surgeon scientist, the EAST Research Scholarship gave me the opportunity to conduct my first clinical trial. I will now have the necessary preliminary data to apply for a NIH K award or R21 with the goal of eventually achieving R01 funding to support large prospective trials.

Area of Research: cerebral autoregulation and cerebral vasospasm in patients with traumatic brain injury.

The EAST Trauma Research Scholarship is funded through contributions to the EAST Development Fund. To learn more about this award and past recipients, click here.
