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.

Posttraumatic Stress Disorder

Dr. Maguen's research interests fall under the general umbrella of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). They include risk and resilience factors in veterans; female veterans and mental health; moreal injury; and coping with the ongoing threat of terrorism in countries such as Israel. Current projects include investigations into the psychological impact of killing in war; the relationship between PTSD, comorbid disorders, and service utilization in women veterans; and the relationship between mild TBI and PTSD.
