Dr. Szaflarski completed his MD at Collegium Medicum (Bydgoszcz) of the Nicolaus Copernicus University, Torun/Poland in 1991, followed by a Ph.D. at the same institution in 1997 in the area of neuroembryology. He completed a neurology residency and later a fellowship in Clinical Neurophysiology and Epilepsy at University of Cincinnati. Dr. Szaflarski initiated his research career with a fellowship at the Medical College of Wisconsin in the laboratory of Dr. Jeffrey R. Binder, where he studied functional magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) acquisition and analysis.
Dr. Szaflarski's interests encompass translational and clinical research components. His laboratory research focuses on neuroimaging of cortical plasticity in acute, sub-acute, and chronic brain injury. Dr. Szaflarski is also pursuing research interests focused on development of new treatments for post-injury seizures and status epilepticus in intensive care settings as well as exploring new pharmacological and non-pharmacological treatment modalities for psychogenic non-epileptic seizures.
