Geoffrey T. Manley, MD, PhD is the Chief of Neurosurgery at Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital and Professor and Vice Chairman of Neurosurgery at the University of California San Francisco (UCSF). He co-directs the UCSF Brain and Spinal Injury Center. Dr. Manley is an internationally recognized expert in neurotrauma. He has published over 250 manuscripts that reflect a wide range of research interests from molecular aspects of brain injury to the clinical care of traumatic brain injury (TBI) patients. He has helped to define new molecular mechanisms and develop advanced neuromonitoring and informatics tools for TBI. He currently leads national and international efforts, funded by public-private collaborations, to create a modern precision medicine information commons for TBI. This information commons integrates clinical, imaging, proteomic, genomic, and outcome biomarkers of TBI to drive the development of a new TBI disease classification system. As demonstrated in other diseases, a more precise classification of TBI could revolutionize diagnosis, direct patient-specific treatment, and improve outcomes. His many honors include the Trauma Research Award from the American College of Surgeons and the General Motors Trauma Research Award. He has served as a consultant for the Prehospital Guidelines Committee for the World Health Organization, and on numerous clinical research committees for the National Institutes of Health, Centers for Disease Control, and Department of Defense.
