Sean Berman attended Amherst College where he majored in English and Pre-Medical studies while playing quarterback for the football team. Upon graduation, he enrolled in the Masters of Science Biology program at Louisiana Tech University where he also utilized his last year of NCAA eligibility and played quarterback for head football coach Skip Holtz. Berman began his thesis work studying concussions where he developed a new laboratory methodology for studying blast induced traumatic brain injuries (TBI) in rats. He later went on to demonstrate and publish on the efficacy of treating TBI with the intravenous administration of adult adipose derived stem cells. He currently works with the Cell Surgical Network, a team of international physicians, studying the clinical application of stem cells and regenerative medicine. Sean has peer review published papers in neuroscience and has developed IRB approved protocols for investigating the use of cell therapy to mitigate TBI as well as PTSD in soldiers exposed to blast explosions with the United States Air Force.
