Dr. Dalton Dietrich



Dr. Dalton Dietrich is Scientific Director at The Miami Project to Cure Paralysis and the Kinetic Concepts Distinguished Chair in Neurosurgery, University of Miami Miller School of Medicine.

He received his Ph.D. in Anatomy from the Medical College of Virginia and completed a postdoctoral fellowship in the Department of Pharmacology at Washington University. Dr. Dietrich is the Senior Associate Dean for Discovery Science at the University of Miami. His research is focused on clarifying the pathophysiology of brain and spinal cord injury with the ultimate goal of developing new therapies to protect and enhance recovery of function. Dr. Dietrich and coworkers have studied the cellular and molecular injury mechanism underlying neurological disorders including stroke, traumatic brain and spinal cord injury. He and his colleagues provided the initial preclinical data indicating that small differences in the temperature of the brain and spinal cord critically determine patterns of neuronal vulnerability. He is currently the Sponsor of a first-in-man FDA approved clinical trial testing the safety of human Schwann Cell transplants after SCI. He has published over 300 peer reviewed journal articles and is the Editor-In-Chief of the Journal Therapeutic Hypothermia & Temperature Management and Deputy Editor of the Journal of Neurotrauma.
