Baylor University receives federal grant to fight Gulf War Illness


Baylor University is getting two new federal grants to help fight Gulf War Illness, which affects around 175,000 Gulf War veterans.

The $1.6 million grant brings the funding for the university's research program to over $2.3 million. This money will help the university fund three projects it has planned. One project will be a joint study with Scott and White Healthcare that will look at the brain and immune system.

Baylor epidemiologist Lea Steele says the project should give a better picture of the processes that drive veterans' symptoms. These symptoms include chronic headaches and memory problems.
