ANNOUNCEMENTS

Carissa Weis’ dissertation work: ‘Data driven approach to dynamic resting state functional connectivity in post-traumatic stress disorder’ is presented here using the R shiny app, a great way to disseminate research findings to the public.

‘Analysis of Genetically Regulated Gene Expression Identifies a Prefrontal PTSD Gene, SNRNP35, Specific to Military Cohorts‘ has been accepted at Cell Reports. This is the first publication from the PGC-PTSD Systems Biology workgroup!

DTI neuroimaging paper ‘Altered White Matter Microstructural Organization in Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder across 3,047 Adults: Results from the PGC-ENIGMA PTSD Consortium’ has been accepted at Biological Psychiatry.

PGC-PTSD Freeze 2 summary data now available! See Access Data to learn more.

Check out Gopalkumar Rakesh, MD’s latest poster ‘Thalamic Nuclei Volumes in Posttraumatic Stress Disorder: A Multisite PCG-ENIGMA PTSD Study’ here!
