Research Consortiums 

Karestan Koenen, Arik Shalev and Ron Kessler invite investigators with prospective data predicting PTSD from ER studies to join their new NIMH-funded International Consortium to Predict PTSD. The goal of this study is to identify robust predictors of PTSD that can be used in first-response settings. Contact Karestan if you have appropriate data and want more information.

Karestan Koenen, Kerry Ressler and Israel Liberzon invite investigators with genetic data on PTSD to join their PTSD group within the Psychiatric Genomics Consortium. The goal of this consortium is identify genetic biomarkers of PTSD by conducting large-scale mega-analysis of both genotype and epigenetic data. Contact Karestan if you have appropriate data and want more information.
