Research at NCIRE

NCIRE-The Veterans Health Research Institute is the leading private nonprofit institute devoted to Veterans health research in the United States. Our mission is to advance Veterans health through research.

We support the work of some of the nation's foremost physicians and scientists at the San Francisco Veterans Affairs Medical Center, the premier biomedical research facility in the VA system. All have faculty appointments at the University of California, San Francisco, which has its own proud traditions of research and patient care. We also partner with the U.S. Department of Defense to support health research on behalf of our men and women in the Armed Forces.

Those who have served in uniform have given their best for their country. In return, we believe that they deserve nothing less than the best health care research we can provide.

Mechanisms, Gender Differences, and Interventions in PTSD

Dr. Inslicht’s research focuses on identifying neurobiological mechanisms that underlie post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), fear conditioning models of PTSD, putative biomarkers that may explain gender differences in PTSD, and pharmacological and psychological interventions to ameliorate stress responding. Current projects include a clinical study to determine whether the pharmacological agents D-cycloserine and hydrocortisone can enhance fear extinction learning and retention in chronic PTSD, and a study examining the relationship between hormones and neurosteroids that may be associated with gender differences in PTSD.
