The invisible wounds are not invisible to those that struggle with them every day or their families. They are invisible to the rest of us and to the system that is blind to them and has failed to aggressively pursue the answers.
These brave men and women voluntarily stepped up on the line to serve this great nation with the goal of protecting our freedoms… many have gone into harm’s way at personal expense and sacrifice. We cannot leave any more of them behind. It is our national obligation to support those who have come home with both visible and invisible wounds.

Cohen Veterans Bioscience is advancing the scientific understanding of the invisible wounds
Our research and advocacy aim to fast-track the science and improve the lives of Veterans and service members living with the invisible wounds by:
Advancing our understanding of TBI and PTSD through rigorous research, including discovering genetic factors and building predictive data models.
Fast-tracking the development of easy-to-use diagnostic tests and guidelines to diagnose TBI and PTSD quickly and accurately.
Advancing research that can help match patients to the most effective treatments, including wellness, digital health, drug and device approaches.
Advocating for policies that prioritize brain trauma solutions for Veterans at the federal, state, and local levels.
Join the fight to help advance diagnostics and treatments for brain trauma
Across the country, Veterans, first responders, and everyday heroes are using their hobbies and passions to help fund our transformative research.
A Marine Veteran brings hope to individuals and families affected by TBI and suicide.
After Marine Veteran Tristan Wimmer lost his brother and fellow Marine to suicide, he founded 22 Jumps to honor him and all Veterans whose lives are cut short by suicide. 22 Jumps is a series of fundraising events where Veterans and others BASE jump 22 times in a single day in honor of the 22 Veterans who die by suicide each day. The funds from these events help advance solutions for TBI.
