He is the lead investigator of a recently awarded $16 million NIH grant for a multi-center study to develop methods of diagnosing CTE during life, as well as examining potential risk factors of the disease (including genetic and head impact exposure).

Dr. Stern has also published on various aspects of cognitive assessment and is the senior author of many widely used neuropsychological tests, including the Neuropsychological Assessment Battery (NAB).
