Gulf War Illness Consortium
The Gulf War Illness (GWI) consortium is conducting a series of studies aimed at providing a comprehensive understanding of the pathobiology of GWI. This includes clinical studies conducted at three sites (Boston, Miami, Central Texas) that will collect data on veterans with GWI and healthy controls that includes brain imaging, neuropsychological testing, and diverse immune and genetic measures. Parallel laboratory studies will evaluate persistent effects of GW exposures (pesticides,sarin, anti-nerve gas pills) in cell and rodent models. Results will be used to identify biomarkers of GWI and develop targeted treatments for these ill veterans.
