"Mount Sinai Awarded $6M to Study PTSD Prevention"
Researchers at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai have been awarded close to $6 million through a U.S. Army medical research grant to study post-traumatic stress disorder prevention. "If we refine this, eventually there might be something that is the equivalent of an EpiPen for trauma," said Rachel Yehuda, PhD, professor of psychiatry and neuroscience at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. The study will be conducted at two sites: The Mount Sinai Hospital and Chaim Sheba Medical Center in Israel, which serves civilians and military personnel.
