We are so pleased to share that our DoD grant has finally been awarded! We will evaluate the PTSD-gut microbiome relationship and develop synbiotics to prevent/ameliorate PTSD. This work is supported by the Office of the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Health Affairs, through the Traumatic Brain Injury and Psychological Health Research Program (Focused Program Award), endorsed by the Department of Defense. In this project, we will collaborate with Drs. Karestan Koenen and Laura Kubzansky from Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, Drs. Jakob Hartmann and Kerry Ressler from McLean Hospital, and Dr. Xuesong He from Forsyth Institute.
