ASNR Virtual Mentorship Program Stories: Dr. Benjamin Philip
My name is Benjamin Philip, PhD, and I’m an Assistant Professor of Occupational Therapy, Neurology, and Surgery at Washington University in St. Louis. I started my career as a neuroscientist, and when I transitioned into translational research, the American Society for Neurorehabilitation (ASNR) was the perfect home for me. Right now I’m an early career faculty member running a small laboratory that focuses on the brain mechanisms of handedness, the brain consequences of peripheral neurological injury, and how these two intersect to improve rehabilitation for patients with an impaired dominant hand.
