Goals of the DIAGNOSE CTE Research Project:

  • To collect and analyze neuroimaging and fluid biomarkers for the detection of CTE during life.

  • To characterize the clinical presentation of CTE.

  • To examine the progression of CTE over a three year period.

  • To refine and validate diagnostic criteria for the clinical diagnosis of CTE.

  • To investigate genetic and head impact exposure risk factors for CTE.

  • To share project data with researchers across the country and abroad in order to expedite growth in our understanding and treatment of this disease.
