SEATTLE, April 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- One Mind for Research announced today that Wounded Warrior Project(R) (WWP) has pledged $3.5 million in support of One Mind's "Gemini Program," contingent upon One Mind securing additional funding. "The Gemini Program" is a multi-year study of Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and Post-Traumatic Stress (PTS).

One Mind is catalyzing collaboration between international research centers, industry, and government to accelerate the translation of basic science into breakthrough diagnostics and improved treatments for all brain diseases and injuries. The Gemini Program is the first major research project in this mission.

Scheduled to launch in 2013, this multi-country, multi-site program will create a large-scale database of individuals with TBI and PTS with rigorous biomarker (e.g., genetics, imaging) and clinical measures. Gemini will enroll and follow 3,000-5,000 patients with head trauma in a multiple year study. Research of this scale will yield results that can be very rapidly translated into improved patient outcomes.
