    Allen W. Brown, MD

    2016 AWARD RECIPIENT

    ACRM is pleased to recognize Allen W. Brown, MD as the 2016 recipient of the Edward Lowman Award.

    Dr. Brown is consultant and division chair of brain rehabilitation in the Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, and associate professor of PM&R at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN. He is also project director of Mayo Clinic’s Traumatic Brain Injury Model System Center, continuously funded by the National Institute on Disability, Independent Living, and Rehabilitation Research since 1998.

    Dr. Brown graduated from the University of Minnesota Medical School and the Mayo School of Graduate Medical Education. He completed a postdoctoral fellowship at Karolinska Institute, Stockholm, Sweden, in the Department of Cellular and Molecular Neuroscience.

    Dr. Brown’s research team studies the process of providing medical rehabilitation care to individuals after their brain function has been altered by injury or disease. The long term goal of this research is to improve participation in roles meaningful to these individuals through testing of rehabilitation models of care in the real world. Dr. Brown's research team works within the communities of the upper Midwest to study population-based epidemiology of brain injury, new interventions for improving walking after stroke and negotiating public transportation using smart phone technology, and community-based randomized clinical trials of complex clinical interventions to improve advocacy skill and quality of life after brain injury. Dr. Brown has led the development of an acquired brain disorders service line at Mayo Clinic which integrates acute care and team-based rehabilitation consultative services that provides efficient, patient-focused care across the continuum of need and recovery.
