The Advanced BRAIN Health Clinic is a specialist BiomaRker, Advanced Imaging and Neurocognitive assessment clinic for retired elite rugby players.
The Rugby Football Union and Premiership Rugby are collaborating on a partnership with the Institute of Sport, Exercise and Health (ISEH) and Imperial College London to provide a specialist clinical service for the assessment and management of retired elite male and female rugby players between the ages of 30-55 who have concerns over their individual brain health.
The clinic offers a unique, specialist, neurological assessment service, supported by advanced imaging, neurocognitive assessment and biomarker measurements. This will provide retired elite players with a comprehensive assessment of medical and psychological factors relevant to their brain health, led by academic and clinical experts, Professor David Sharp and Dr Richard Sylvester.
An integrated and a parallel research programme will conduct research in relation to the risk, causes, assessment and management of brain problems occurring following participation in elite rugby.
