Dr. Broglio is a Professor of Kinesiology, Neurology (adjunct), and Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (adjunct) at the University of Michigan and serves as the Concussion Content Lead at the U-M Injury Prevention Center. Dr. Broglio completed his training at the University of Georgia, took his first faculty position at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and has been at the University of Michigan since 2011. At Michigan, Dr. Broglio is the Director of the Michigan Concussion Center and the NeuroTrauma Research Laboratory where he oversees Center operations and conducts multi-disciplinary research aimed at fundamental questions on concussion prevention, identification, diagnosis, management, and outcomes. Dr. Broglio contributed to the U-M IPC Massive Open Online Course, “Injury Prevention for Children and Teens” in the Sports Injury Prevention section.

Research Interests

Dr. Broglio’s early research focused on identifying the best instrumentation for assessing and managing the concussed athlete, but more recently, he has concentrated on injury prevention by investigating head impact biomechanics and defining the natural history of concussion. His biomechanical work has focused on interscholastic high school football athletes with a series of papers outlining head impact exposure and intensity related to concussive and sub-concussive blows. In addition, Dr. Broglio has investigated how this impacts cognitive health and motor control in both the acute and chronic stages of injury.
