Division of Epidemiology Research On Gulf War Associated Neurolgic Illness  Popular

Dr. Robert Haley and colleagues at UT Soutwestern have been conducting epidemiologic clinical and laboratory research on Gulf War syndrome and related neurologic illnesses in Gulf War Veterans since March of 1994. The work has been supported by a continuing grant from the Perot Foundation and by a cooperative agreement with the US Department of Defense. The objectives of the research are to define new or unique clinical syndromes among Gulf War veterans, determine their causes, identify areas of damage or dysfunction in the brain and nervous system responsible for the symtoms, develop a cost-effective battery of clinical tests that can diagnose the illness, search for underlying genetic traits that might predispose to the illness, and perform clinical trials of promising treatments.
