Dr. McKee Receives $10M NIH Grant

Ann McKee, MD, Director of the BU CTE Center, has been awarded a five-year, $10 million U54 grant from the National Institutes of Health to study the impact of traumatic brain injury (TBI) and repetitive head impacts (RHI) on Alzheimer’s Disease (AD), Alzheimer’s disease-related dementias (ADRD) and chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE) and resulting clinical syndromes. 

Dr. McKee, along with fellow BU investigators,  will collaborate with investigators at Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai (ISMMS) to characterize brain donors with and without a history of RHI and/or TBI and determine their neuropathological and clinical phenotypes.
