Long-term Assessment and Treatment Exploration for TBI (LATE-TBI) Lab

Welcome to the LATE-TBI Lab

The LATE-TBI Lab is dedicated to researching the long-term effects of traumatic brain injury (TBI), including chronic and neurodegenerative diseases, such as chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE) and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). Our work aims to bridge the gap between bench and bedside, with the ultimate goal of developing effective treatments for TBI associated disease. We aim to identify novel diagnostic strategies and therapeutic targets to improve the lives of individuals affected by CTE, ALS, and related conditions.

About Us

The LATE-TBI Lab is dedicated to identifying innovative ways to improve recovery and quality of life for individuals experiencing the chronic and progressive changes following traumatic brain injury (TBI). Prior research has identified the risk factors associated with neurodegenerative disease following TBI, and sought to improve the clinical diagnosis of these diseases.
