Abstract:

The Neuroscience Center of Excellence at San Francisco VA Medical Center is a unique VADepartment of Defense research collaboration with the goal of predicting, anticipating, and reducing the effects of injury on our warfighters and veterans, potentially minimizing veterans long-term disabilities and their subsequent impact on the health care system. It represents a joint collaborative research effort between SFVAMC, Department of Defense, and NCIRE that combines military knowledge of health impairments to warfighters with VA data and expertise on prediction, prevention, diagnosis, and intervention. What follows are the individual Progress Reports of the various projects funded by this Program. See each pilot study for individual abstract. Three of the pilot studies PI Rajvir Dahiya, PhD Stephen Massa, MD, PhD William Seaman, MD have been completed in 2008 and final reports are included for these specific pilot studies.
