Jose E. Cavazos, M.D., Ph.D., assistant professor of medicine, will serve a four-year term as a charter member of the Brain Disorders and Clinical Neuroscience 1 Study Section (BDCN-1). The peer review team is part of the National Institutes of Health (NIH).

As a reviewer, Dr. Cavazos is responsible for reviewing grant applications that address the anatomical and functional basis of neural disease and injury, including stroke/ischemia, neurodegenerative diseases, epilepsy, spinal cord injury, traumatic brain injury, dystonia/ataxia and neuropathies.

The NIH considers his input, along with the input of other peer reviewers, vital in promoting research that will help prevent, detect, diagnose and treat disease.
