John J. Leddy, MD, clinical professor of orthopaedics, and Barry S. Willer, PhD, professor of psychiatry, will use a five-year, $2 million National Institutes of Health grant to continue their studies of concussion protocols. They will enroll about 90 concussed teenagers in a clinical study to test whether the inability to exercise beyond a certain intensity — what clinicians call exercise intolerance — is a biological marker for concussion and a predictor of recovery time.
