Backed by Tulane’s world-class research facilities and faculty, we identify and address the challenges that affect athletes and the sports industry. Our interdisciplinary research efforts are concentrated on developing a better understanding of their unique needs and improving the lives of current and former athletes at all levels of play.

Our mission is to provide comprehensive neurologic care to our brain donors, study the mechanisms that contribute to the development of Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE), and enrich our understanding of the pathology, etiology and epidemiology of trauma-related neurodegenerative disorders.
