There are no effective clinical treatments for TBI. Dr. Sayeed has partnered in the development of new progesterone analogs that reach the damaged brain faster and are more effective in
emergency field conditions than natural progesterone. If successful, this work can lead to a breakthrough in acute treatments for TBI.


His research focuses on translational neuroscience seeking safe and effective acute-stage treatments for pediatric and adult traumatic brain injury (TBI), stroke and its comorbidities.
