Vice President Matthew Finneran was interviewed by The Daily to share his story about how he was inspirired to study neuroscience because of his family's experience with traumatic brain injury.

He shared how Ryan Finneran suffered from a traumatic brain injury from a car accident when Matthew was a freshman in high school. Matthew shared how his brother's experience made him believe the options for brain injury therapeutics are too finite, motivating him to pursue his career in neuroscience research.

Matthew had a first-hand experience of how limited his brother's options were for therapies after his injury. This catapulted him to try to find novel therapeutics that someone like Ryan could have had.

Matthew is now conducting research on molecular mechanisms behind neuroregeneration and therapeutic drug developments for brain injuries.
