Dr. Daniel J. Liebl
Class of 1983
Dr. Liebl is a tenured Professor at The Miami Project to Cure Paralysis, University of Miami Miller School of Medicine since 2000. He is a National Institute of Health (NIH) funded researcher, educator, and noteworthy scholar that is a nationally and internationally recognized leader in his field. As an academic researcher, he has dedicated his career to exploring the biological mechanisms that underlie traumatic injury to the brain and spinal cord. His research program employs cutting edge approaches to protect the nervous system from progressive damage and developing novel therapeutic treatments to promote recovery. Recent discoveries have led to the development of novel drug candidates to mitigate injury-induce cell death and disruptions of the brain circuitry. He is also pioneering our understanding of how the nervous system responds to injury through the development of regenerative strategies. Dr. Liebl hopes to enhance our fundamental understanding of central nervous system pathologies to provide real world solutions to the millions of people that suffer from traumatic brain and spinal cord injury.
