About the Repository
We are collecting blood, plasma, serum, saliva, stool, and urine samples from 500 Gulf War veterans as well as demographic surveys and cognitive test data as part of the BBRAIN study. We will combine demographic, health, and exposure data with cognitive test outcomes and brain imaging data (MRI, DTI, fMRI, PET imaging) from 10 collaborating institutions into a centralized catalog available for data mining and sharing. We will also be including de-identified previously collected survey, clinical, and preclinical data compiled from the 10 participating GWI investigators to be made available to the BBRAIN repository.
Create, view, or edit data requests using our portal. All requests will be reviewed by a team of BBRAIN investigators headed by the Principal Investigator, Kim Sullivan, PhD.
