Research

The Rothman Concussion Network's research program seeks to develop translational research that evaluates collaborative treatment modalities and novel interventions for those affected by concussion. We partner with departments across Jefferson, Rothman Institute, and Wills Eye Hospital, as well as companies such as ImPACT Applications, to source interdisciplinary expertise for current and future projects. Our scholars bring this expertise to school and community partners in order to evaluate the effect of public intervention and awareness on patient clinical outcomes.
