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.
