Abstract:

Repetitive mild TBI leads to chronic traumatic encephalopathy CTE, but the underlying molecular changes remain unclear. Here, biochemical and genetic studies that deepen our understanding of the pathogenesis of CTE will be performed, facilitating diagnosis and therapeutic development. This award has been in the transfer process from Columbia University to the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai until 10282015, thus no funds have been available to initiate the project. Now that funds are available, work will commence.
