Dr. Casey Steadman earned her B.S. in Biological Engineering and her M.S. in Biomedical Engineering from Mississippi State University. She then completed her PhD at the University of Louisville where she studied the effects of spinal cord injury on sexual function in a rat contusion model. In 2019, she joined the Grill Laboratory at Duke University.
Casey is passionate about researching top priority quality of life issues after spinal cord injury. Her current research focuses on neuromodulatory therapeutic targets for improving bladder and sexual function post-injury. Dr. Steadman seeks to practice bench-to-bedside research, in which she will take therapeutic interventions from the animal model to the patient to impact individuals with spinal cord injury.
