VA-DoD PTSD CNS Tissue Repository

In 2010, the Veterans Administration’s central office of Research and Development recognized the importance of not only a posttraumatic stress disorder biorepository, but also of a larger national biorepository for all neuropsychiatric illnesses. The Center for the Study of Traumatic Stress involvement in this VA-DoD PTSD CNS Tissue Repository initiative continues through planning meetings with experts from the VA in specimen collection and storage and in bioinformatics as part of developing plans for collection of data and specimens at the local level with an emphasis on PTSD and commonly co-morbid conditions.
