Personal profile


Steve Kornguth is a research professor in neurology at Dell Medical School and a senior research fellow in kinesiology and health education at The University Texas at Austin. He earned his B.A. at Columbia College in New York City and his Ph.D. in biochemistry at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. He was a professor of neurology and of biomolecular chemistry at the University of Wisconsin between 1962 and 1998. His translational neuroscience research during this period related to neural development, biological basis of neurological disorders, autoimmune diseases and development of binding agents and platforms for sensors and magnetic resonance image contrast materials. Kornguth served as director of neuroscience programs at the National Science Foundation for a two-year period. In 1998 he moved to Texas and began working at UT Austin, where he directed the Biological and Chemical Countermeasures Program and the sustaining and enhancing high operational-tempo performance of soldiers. Most recently, his research has focused on the autoimmune mechanisms involved in the development of traumatic brain injury. Kornguth was a member of the Army Science Board from 2004 to 2013.
