Research Interests

Dr. Aldret’s sustained research track is in athletic performance and post-eligibility health outcomes. He has published work on the interaction of sleep and mental health on in-game performance and strength measures. Currently, Dr. Aldret is collaborating with researchers at UNC-Greensboro and the NCAA on follow-up health care for athletes and the consequences of athletic participant in collision sports on post-competition measures of job satisfaction and activities of daily living. Dr. Aldret’s has previously published research in Frontiers in Neurology on novel biomarkers of concussion in hockey players. His additional research interests are best practices in athletic training administration and policy development. Dr. Aldret is now collaborating with the University of Wyoming and UNC-Charlotte to study the influence of COVID-19 on athlete health care at the NCAA Division-1 level.
