Linda Noble is a professor in the Department of Neurology, and a professor in the Department of Psychology in the College of Natural Sciences.

Noble’s research lab is focused on translational neuroscience research in the field of neurotrauma. Her team’s overarching long-term objective is to develop targeted therapeutics that will improve recovery after traumatic spinal cord and pediatric brain injuries. This research relies on cellular, molecular and behavioral tools to identify key mechanisms underlying early cell injury that impair recovery processes in preclinical models of neurotrauma. This multifaceted approach has led to the discovery of new pharmacologic and stem-cell based therapeutics that ameliorate several key features of spinal cord injury; namely, bladder and locomotor dysfunction and central neuropathic pain.
