The Baylor Veterans Health Research Program addresses complex medical conditions affecting American war veterans.

The Baylor Veterans Health Research Program of the Baylor Institute of Biomedical Studies is conducting research on the long-term health consequences of military service in the 1990-1991 Gulf War. Current projects include clinical studies, conducted in partnership with Scott & White Healthcare, to advance understanding of the pathobiology of Gulf War illness and identify biomarkers for this challenging condition. In addition, epidemiologic studies will provide current insights into the broader spectrum of health issues in veterans who served during the Gulf War era.

The Baylor Veterans Health Research program seeks to provide answers to important health questions remaining from the Gulf War, with the ultimate objective of improving the health and lives of veterans. This multidisciplinary research program involves collaborators from diverse scientific fields, in Central Texas and across the nation.

Regional and national partners include:
  • Scott & White Healthcare (Temple and Waco, Texas)
  • Texas A&M Health Science Center (Temple, Texas)
  • Myriad RBM (Austin, Texas)
  • Columbia University School of Public Health (New York, N.Y.)
