Dr. Bennet Omalu is an associate clinical professor of pathology at UC Davis. Omalu discovered the neurological disease known as chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE) in retired professional football players. He is also chief medical examiner of San Joaquin County. CTE has received much attention in the media especially in professional football. Currently the disease can only be diagnosed post mortem.
