Dr. Robert Wright Contributes to Report by National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine

P30 Center Director, Dr. Robert Wright, contributes to a new report from NASEM that recommends the creation of a health monitoring and research program (HMRP) on Gulf War and post 9/11 veterans. The committee that carried out the study and wrote the report assessed the available evidence on the reproductive, developmental, and generational health effects related to exposures that may have occurred during the Gulf War and post-9/11 conflicts. While there is a growing base of human and animal evidence on the reproductive and developmental effects of many toxicants of concern, there is a dearth of information on the specific effects of veterans’ exposures on their children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.
