Riddell, TGen team with ASU football to further genetic research into concussion detection
Date:8/25/2014

PHOENIX, Ariz. and ROSEMONT, Ill. Aug. 25, 2014 Riddell, the leader in football helmet technology and innovation, and the Translational Genomics Research Institute (TGen), a leader in cutting-edge genomic research, today announced that the Pac-12's Arizona State University and its Sun Devil football program will again participate in a genetic research study designed to advance athlete concussion detection and treatment.

Now in its second year, the joint research project will combine molecular information and head impact data from Sun Devil football student-athletes to identify whether the effects of sub-concussive hits are identifiable.

The researchers will monitor the players' changing molecular information throughout a season of typical head impact exposure associated with football practice and games. Representatives from the Sun Devil medical team and TGen will collect the molecular samples from the participating athletes, all of whom volunteered to partake in the study.

"This partnership represents another dynamic and innovative step toward ensuring that the health and well-being of our student-athletes remains our most important goal," Vice President for Arizona State University Athletics Ray Anderson said. "Sun Devil Athletics continues to serve as a pioneering force in this important issue and is proud to participate in this world-class research study for the second consecutive year with two outstanding industry trendsetters in Riddell and TGen."

Arizona State's preferred helmet and protective equipment provider, Riddell, has again deployed its Sideline Response System (SRS) to obtain real-time head impact data from Arizona State football student-athletes. Riddell SRS provides researchers with a wide range of valuable information on the frequency and severity of head impacts a player receives during games and practices.

Data gathered from the system will be combined with genetic information from players tha
