Graduate Researcher, Doctoral Candidate in Anatomy and Neurobiology
Location: 72 E. Concord Street B7800, Boston, MA 02118
Julie Stamm received a Bachelor of Science in Athletic Training from the University of Wisconsin in 2009. She spent the 2010-2011 school year as a Graduate Assistant Athletic Trainer at Boston University. She is currently a doctoral candidate in Anatomy and Neurobiology at the Boston University School of Medicine. Julie joined the CTE Center in January 2011.
CTE Center Role
Julie is a graduate researcher at the CTE Center. She is involved in all of the CTE Center’s clinical research studies including the Brain Donation Registry, LEGEND, and DETECT. Her primary focus involves neuroimaging in the DETECT study, and she received an NRSA predoctoral fellowship grant from the NIH to investigate neuroimaging of the frontal lobe as a potential biomarker for the diagnosis of CTE. For this project Julie, works closely with mentors Dr. Stern and CTE Center collaborator Dr. Martha Shenton at the Psychiatry Neuroimaging Laboratory.
Julie is interested in using neuroimaging to study how the anatomical features of CTE correlate with the clinical symptoms of the disease and how repetitive brain trauma (RBT) leads to the development of CTE.
