ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) — The University of Michigan is a partner in a national effort to study concussions that’s being discussed by President Barack Obama.

At the White House on Thursday, Obama is hosting a summit with representatives of professional sports leagues, coaches, parents, young athletes and researchers.

Among the financial commitments is a $30 million joint effort by the NCAA and the Defense Department to produce research on concussion risks, treatment and management.

Steven Broglio is associate professor at University of Michigan’s School of Kinesiology and director of the NeuroSport Research Laboratory. The university says he’s co-principal investigator of the NCAA-DoD Concussion Assessment, Research and Education Consortium.

Broglio’s research, in part, plans to help more thoroughly examine the history of concussions among NCAA athletes.
