This Web highlight posted by the Department of Defense (DoD) features the purpose and progress of two research consortia jointly funded in 2013 by the DoD and the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to address the two most prominent health concerns affecting service members and veterans today: traumatic brain injury (TBI) and posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). These consortia include the Chronic Effects of Neurotrauma Consortium (CENC), which is focused on TBI, and the Consortium to Alleviate PTSD, which builds upon the infrastructure and programs already in place through STRONG STAR to create the largest PTSD research consortium in history.
