Charles Limoli, PhD CHIEF SCIENCE OFFICER

Dr. Limoli is currently a Professor of Radiation Oncology at the University of California, Irvine School of Medicine. He received his Bachelor of Science degree in chemistry from MIT, then went on to receive his PhD in Biomedical Sciences from UCSD. Since that time, Dr. Limoli has worked with some of the world’s leading scientists, and was awarded funds by NASA to study the long-term effects of space and cosmic radiation on an astronaut’s cognition. His “space brain” project is part of NASA’s Human Research Program, and critical to further human exploration of space. The study aims to investigate how cosmic radiation affects an astronaut’s cognition and to identify ways to mitigate these effects.

Dr. Limoli’s focus also includes monitoring the effects of radiation on cancer patients and on the central nervous system. He has defined many of the mechanisms that contribute to radiation-induced cognitive dysfunction. His work defines the importance of oxidative stress in the brain, how irradiation disrupts neuronal structure, and synaptic integrity, and how stem cells can be used to offset the adverse effects of both radio and chemotherapy in the brain. He continues to work to further understand the causes, consequences, and potential remedies for neuro-cognitive dysfunction caused by various cancer treatments.
