Secondary Analysis of PTSD Genome Wide Association Study Data Published in Cell Reports

Cohen Veterans Bioscience is proud to co-fund this study which is a secondary analysis of the data from our 2019 Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) Genome Wide Association Study to better understand how the expression of certain genes may affect vulnerability to PTSD and may provide insights for prevention and treatment.

In the face of repeated, prolonged, or severe trauma, some individuals seem to be more susceptible to PTSD while others are resilient. Identifying which individuals may be susceptible to PTSD—and why—can help researchers develop effective interventions.
