Department of Anatomy & Neurobiology
Endowed Chair, The Spinal Cord & Brain Injury Research Center (SCoBIRC)
University of Kentucky
Patrick Sullivan, also a Research Physiologist at Lexington VAMC, received his undergraduate degree in biology and doctoral degree in anatomy and neurobiology from the University of Kentucky. Dr. Sullivan completed a postdoctoral fellowship at The Reeve-Irvine Research Center at the University of California at Irvine. Dr. Sullivan has published over 100 peer-reviewed manuscripts and has calculated a h-index of 48 and has had continual external funding since 2002. Dr. Sullivan’s areas of research include the role of mitochondrial dysfunction in the neuropathology of acute brain and spinal cord injury, mitochondrial aging and the CNS, and mitochondrial bioenergetics.
