Polygenic prediction of PTSD trajectories and inflammation in 9/11 responders

Project Number
1 U01 OH011864-01
State University of New York at Stony Brook
Fiscal Year Awarded
Project Duration
2 Years


Recent discoveries in genetics promise to revolutionize our understanding of posttraumatic stress disorder. We will test whether these genetic vulnerabilities can predict course of this disorder in 8,000 responders to World Trade Center disaster. We also will use powerful genetic models to investigate whether systemic inflammation is responsible for worsening of posttraumatic stress symptoms, knowledge that can lead to development of new treatments.
