Former Illini football player Kevin Jackson, a senior research scientist at the Beckman Institute, discusses his research and development of more effective treatments for head and neck injuries
We heartily recommend reading the new piece on Kevin Jackson published by the Beckman Institute last week. A former star running back at the University of Illinois, Jackson earned his Ph.D. in 2003 and helped adapt WElkins military cooling technology for possible use tackling the multi-faceted challenge of athletic head and neck injury. Jackson continues to conduct groundbreaking research in coordination with the Carle Foundation Hospital, Beckman Institute, and U of I Division of Intercollegiate Athletics -- we wish him continued success!
