CIMVHR - Role of Neuroinflammation in Mental Disorders: Application of Multimodal Neuroimaging in the Assessment of Military PTSD

Defence Research and Development Canada, is looking for a researcher to conduct a prospective, observational cohort study of Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) personnel and veterans experiencing post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD); using a multimodal neuroimaging (i.e., PET, MRS, MRI) and multivariate biomolecular analysis approach, to assess brain and blood correlates of PTSD, which could yield both clinical utility and novel mechanistic insights into this condition. 

The Canadian Institute for Military and Veteran Health Research (CIMVHR) has entered into partnership with the Government of Canada to procure Research and Development Services related to the mental, social and physical wellbeing of active military members, Veterans and their families.
