Dr. David Zygun is the Past Chair of the Department of Critical Care Medicine and is currently seconded to Alberta Health Services in the role of Edmonton Zone Medical Director.
He trained at the University of Toronto (Internal Medicine) and University of Calgary (Critical Care Medicine, MSc Clinical Epidemiology) prior to completing a neurocritical care medicine fellowship at the University of Cambridge, Cambridge England.
Dr. Zygun has been funded by CIHR and Alberta Innovates: Health Solutions. Dr Zygun's main research interests have focused on the clinical, epidemiological and translational issues relating to neurocritical care, particularly traumatic central nervous system injury and infection. His focus now involves health services research as he completes his Masters of Health Economics, Policy and Management.
He has published 114 peer reviewed scientific articles. He is recognized nationally as a leader in neuro-critical care.
Dr. Victor Ezeugwu is a Physical Therapist and Assistant Professor in the Department of Physical Therapy at the University of Alberta and a Research Affiliate with the Glenrose Rehabilitation Hospital, Edmonton, Alberta.
His research focuses on biomarkers and wearable technologies to optimize neurorehabilitation. He also studies the physical- and social-environment correlates and determinants of movement behaviours in people with neurological and cognitive impairments, and the relationships between sleep, sedentary behaviour, physical activity, and health.
