Biography

Dr. McBride received his Ph.D. from the University of California Riverside under the mentorship of Dr. Victor G. J. Rodgers where his research focused on understanding the phenomena of crowded protein osmotic pressure and its applications to medical devices. During his Ph.D., he received a number of Fellowships, including an NSF IGERT Fellowship in Video Bioinformatics and a DOE GAANN Fellowship.

His postdoctoral training occurred under the tutelage of Dr. John H. Zhang at Loma Linda University where he studied translational neuroscience research with an emphasis on cerebrovascular disease. During his postdoctoral work, Dr. McBride received an NIH F32 award from NHLBI to develop and study an animal model of vasovagal syncope. He has also co-authored several papers in the fields of engineering and neuroscience. In 2017, Dr. McBride joined the Vivian L. Smith Department of Neurosurgery as an Assistant Professor.

Research Information

The research in Dr. McBride’s lab is focused on understanding the pathophysiology of subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH), particularly focusing on delayed cerebral ischemia (DCI). Delayed cerebral ischemia after SAH is a critical factor in the poor prognosis of surviving patients, and currently we still do not fully understand the mechanisms causing DCI. We are using live imaging to understand the cerebrovascular dynamics as they are related to ensuing injury subsequent to SAH. Additionally, we are identifying novel therapeutic targets and developing strategies aimed at attenuating DCI following SAH.

Dr. McBride is collaborating with Dr. Spiros Blackburn to investigate the role of haptoglobin phenotype in DCI post-SAH. The goal of this work is to identify patients who would be at high risk for developing DCI and poor outcome after SAH. This work will also elucidate novel therapeutic targets for preventing DCI.
