Dr. Stuart McDonald
Stuart is a Principal Investigator of the Monash Trauma Group, and Director of Fluid Biomarker Research in the Department of Neuroscience at Monash University. Stuart’s research has focused on improving understanding of how the injured brain interacts with peripheral body systems, and how novel blood tests may be used to improve clinical management of Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI). In January 2019, Dr McDonald was recruited to the newly formed Department of Neuroscience at Monash, where he leads a translational research program investigating “mild” TBI. Stuart is currently leading two large “mild” TBI biomarker studies in partnership with The Alfred Hospital and the Victorian Amateur Football Association.
