Abstract:

The goal of the GWI consortium is to develop a better understanding of GWI and identify specific disease targets to find treatments that will address the cause of the disease. The consortium will integrate our clinical understanding of the disease process with basic research efforts using a novel mathematical model. The computational biology approach will enable the consortium to quickly identify targets of dysfunction and find treatments that will address the causes of the disease. The project will combine animal models of GWI with focus on the immune, cardiovascular and autonomic systems.
