Ph.D. Biological Sciences: Neuroimmunology
Creative & Marketing Director
Susanne Var is a certified Strength and Conditioning Trainer, a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Minnesota, a Brazilian Jiu-jitsu competitor, and formerly an Anatomy & Physiology instructor of record. While Susanne is very passionate about fitness, marketing, and directing the creative process at KAT Strength & Conditioning, she is primarily a scientist. Her research involves examining the potential role of microglia—immune cells of the central nervous system—in neural regeneration and functional recovery after brain injury and trauma (e.g. TBI, CTE, stroke, and neurodegenerative diseases). She hopes that her research will some day lead to the development of novel methods for treating toxic and chronic neuroinflammatory processes that are found in many brain diseases and injuries.
