Areas of Interest

Dr. Korley has expertise in the design and conduct of clinical investigations to diagnose and treat acute brain and cardiac injury using emerging diagnostic technologies. He received doctoral training in translational science and his dissertation focused on the use of high sensitivity troponin I in the diagnosis of acute coronary syndrome. This work also examined other emerging diagnostics including CT coronary angiography and novel electrocardiographic techniques. Additionally, Dr. Korley has substantial experience in the discovery, quantification and validation of novel protein-based biomarkers using advanced proteomics techniques. He is a co-inventor of a panel of novel biomarkers for diagnosing acute traumatic brain injury (TBI). He is the PI of HeadSMART (Head Injury Serum Markers for Assessing Response to Trauma), a prospective cohort study examining the utility of blood-based biomarkers for acute stage TBI diagnosis and risk-stratification.
