The DIAGNOSE CTE (Diagnostics, Imaging, And, Genetics Network for the Objective Study and Evaluation of Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy) Research Project is a federally funded, multi center research study.
The goal of our logo is to be warm and welcoming towards potential diverse participants. The potential participants consist of ex NFL Players, ex College Varsity football players, and control participants (no history of contact sports). We would also like the logo to target medical and science professionals.
We like the idea of including something with the brain, or possibly other scientific features (DNA double helix, MRI scans of brain, PET scans of brain). Below I have included some background information on CTE as well as some images.
Chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE) is a neurodegenerative disease characterized by a distinct deposition of an abnormal form of the tau protein in a pattern that is unique from other diseases, including Alzheimer's disease (AD).
