Professional Summary

Nathan K. Evanson, MD PhD, is originally from Alberta, Canada. He obtained his bachelor's degree in biochemistry and nutritional science from Brigham Young University and went on to train in the physician scientist training program at the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine. He completed a combined residency program in pediatrics and physical medicine and rehabilitation, then joined the Division of Pediatric Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at Cincinnati Children’s. He runs the Brain Recovery After Injury (BRAIN) clinic in the division, as well as doing basic research into recovery from traumatic brain injury.
Dr. Evanson's research interests include traumatic optic nerve injury in a mouse model of traumatic brain injury and metabolic dysregulation/metabolomics of chronic brain injury.
 

Education

Bachelor's Degree: Brigham Young University Provo, UT, 2002 (Biochemistry and Nutritional Science)

Master's Degree: University of Cincinnati Cincinnati, OH, 2010

Doctoral Degree: University of Cincinnati Cincinnati, OH, 2010 (Neuroscience)

Residency: Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center Cincinnati, OH, 2015 (Dual: Pediatrics and Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation)

Research and Practice Interests

Clinical practice includes pediatric acquired brain injury, which consists primarily of traumatic brain injury, but also includes other mechanisms of injury including hypoxic injuries, inflammatory and infectious injuries, drowning, and other mechanisms. 
Research interests primarily include animal models for studying traumatic brain injury recovery, and metabolism/metabolomics of chronic brain injury.
