Abstract:

The Center for the Study of Traumatic Stress entered its second quarter century of service to our nation in 2013. The Centers mission is to advance scientific and academic knowledge, interventions, educational resources and outreach to mitigate the impact of trauma from exposure to war, disasters, terrorism, community violence and public health threats. Our research in neuroscience and the neurobiology of stress is dedicated to finding effective interventions for a number of health issues that are of special interest to the military such as posttraumatic stress disorder PTSD, mild traumatic brain injury mTBI and suicide. Findings from many of our groundbreaking studies will have an impact on individual, family and community resilience in the face of traumatic events into the next quarter century. The Centers scientists, educators and clinicians lead the nation in trauma-informed care, and rapidly moving findings from bench to bedside and from war to disaster.
