What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Surgery
  • Disease

His main research concerns Concussion, Physical therapy, Chronic traumatic encephalopathy, Football and Sports medicine. His Concussion research is classified as research in Injury prevention. His Injury prevention research incorporates elements of Cognition and Disease.

Robert C. Cantu combines subjects such as Neuropsychological test, Occupational safety and health, Suicide prevention and Second-impact syndrome with his study of Physical therapy. The concepts of his Chronic traumatic encephalopathy study are interwoven with issues in Dementia pugilistica, Pathology, Dementia, Depression and Traumatic brain injury. His Sports medicine research integrates issues from Prospective cohort study and Risk factor.

His most cited work include:

  • Chronic traumatic encephalopathy in athletes: progressive tauopathy after repetitive head injury. (1600 citations)
  • Consensus statement on concussion in sport—the 5th international conference on concussion in sport held in Berlin, October 2016 (1321 citations)
  • Cumulative Effects Associated With Recurrent Concussion in Collegiate Football Players: The NCAA Concussion Study (1312 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

Robert C. Cantu mainly investigates Concussion, Physical therapy, Injury prevention, Chronic traumatic encephalopathy and Football. His Second-impact syndrome study, which is part of a larger body of work in Concussion, is frequently linked to Ice hockey, bridging the gap between disciplines.
