Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

The Indiana University School of Medicine will help oversee a three-year, $30 million concussion study being funded by the Indianapolis-based NCAA and the U.S. Defense Department.

The Concussion Assessment, Research and Education Consortium will involve athletes from as many as 30 universities. It will be led by IU's School of Medicine in collaboration with the University of Michigan and the Medical College of Wisconsin.

Psychiatry Department chairman Thomas McAllister will lead the research project's administrative and operations center at the IU School of Medicine. The IU team also will provide data management and analysis, specimen storage and clinical trial support.

Plans call for an initial collection of data on about 7,200 athletes from 12 colleges, growing to about 37,000 athletes at 30 sites.
