In this video Marc Goldfinger, Imperial College London, UK, provides us with a description of chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE), as well as a pathological demonstration illustrating the changes observed in post mortem brain tissues of individuals with CTE. He also explains his work with boxer’s brains, which focuses on a particular collection called the ‘Corsellis collection’.

Marc Goldfinger recently completed his PhD thesis investigating boxers with chronic traumatic encephalopathy. His research focus in general is on traumatic brain injury and neurodegeneration. Marc’s recent projects have included work on the Corsellis Boxer collection, creating a novel tissue clearing technique ‘FASTClear’ and clinical neuropathology. Marc’s recent work has been focused on the role of the vasculature in traumatic brain injury and dementia, with a focus on the gliovascular unit.
