Groundbreaking research is being conducted at Rowan University to help determine if a veteran has Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. It is done by giving them a simple blood test.
Dr. James Grinias is a chemist at Rowan. He was just awarded a $350,000 grant to develop a portable PTSD test for the U.S. Army.
