Dr. Boyd is a Neurointensivist at Queen’s University. Dr. Boyd has been interested in the neural response to injury since the beginning of his research career. His PhD thesis examined the role of growth factors in peripheral nerve injury, which was followed by a post-doctoral fellowship assessing the effects of glial cell transplantation on recovery after spinal cord injury. His current program of research is aimed at understanding the neurological sequale of critical illness. He is the principal investigator of the CONFOCAL program of research, which is an international multicentre observational study designed to assess the association between cerebral perfusion, delirium, and long-term cognitive outcomes in ICU survivors.
