Helen M. Genova, Ph.D. is the assistant director of Neuropsychology & Neuroscience Research at Kessler Foundation. She graduated from the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey Neuroscience Program in 2007. Dr. Genova’s research interests have included examining cognitive dysfunction in various clinical and neurological populations including Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Multiple Sclerosis (MS) and Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI). She is currently using functional magnetic resonance imaging, magnetic resonance spectroscopy and diffusion tensor imaging to examine cognitive impairments in MS and TBI, and how these impairments relate to neuronal pathology. Dr. Genova has been awarded a grant from the National Multiple Sclerosis Society (NMSS) to apply neuroimaging techniques to the examination of cognitive fatigue in MS, as well as a pilot grant from the NMSS to examine longitudinal changes in white matter integrity and cognitive functioning in MS.
