Virginia Tech Carilion Research Institute scientists are investigating the effects of post-traumatic stress disorder on returning veterans, and their work was featured in a special multimedia report by the Roanoke Times. The first video in the "PTSD: Private Battles" series offers a glimpse into the lingering effects of trauma on veterans—as well as the hope that Virginia Tech Carilion Research Institute scientists may have to offer. Part Three of the print series included a story on the Institute’s research on post-traumatic stress disorder.

Michael Friedlander, executive director of the institute, and Brooks King-Casas, an assistant professor who leads a series of studies on post-traumatic stress disorder, were both featured in the series.
