Senior Research Scientist
East Hanover, New Jersey – United States
Helen Genova, PhD, is Assistant Director of the Neuropsychology and Neuroscience Laboratory at Kessler Foundation as well as Research Assistant Professor in the Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at Rutgers University-NJ Medical School. She graduated from the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey Neuroscience Program in 2007. Dr. Genova’s research interests have included examining cognitive dysfunction and fatigue in various clinical and neurological populations including Multiple Sclerosis (MS) and Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI). She is currently using functional magnetic resonance imaging, magnetic resonance spectroscopy and diffusion tensor imaging to examine cognitive impairments in MS and TBI, and how these impairments relate to neuronal pathology. She has published several articles related to the utilization of neuroimaging to assess cognitive fatigue. Dr. Genova has been awarded a grant from the National Multiple Sclerosis Society (NMSS) to apply neuroimaging techniques to the examination of cognitive fatigue in MS, as well as a pilot grant from the NMSS to examine longitudinal changes in white matter integrity and cognitive functioning in MS.
