The work of Indiana CTSI-supported researchers was recently highlighted in a ConsumerAdvocate.org story about the K9s For Warriors program, which recently partnered with Purdue University to study the effectiveness of service dogs as a complementary treatment for military members and veterans who suffer from PTSD.

The study was led by Purdue’s Maggie O’Haire, PhD, an assistant professor of human-animal interaction in the Purdue College of Veterinary Medicine, and Kerri Rodriguez, a human-animal interaction graduate student in the school. Dr. O’Haire is a 2016-2018 recipient of the Indiana CTSI’s K Award, and Rodriguez is a 2017 recipient of the CTSI’s T Award; both awards are translational research fellowships to support early-career investigators.
