Dr. Terence M. Keane received the 2015 John Blair Barnwell Award from VA Clinical Science Research and Development (CSR&D) for his work in the area of traumatic stress.

As co-chair of a National Institute of Mental Health group, Keane was instrumental in the establishment of national standards for the assessment and diagnosis of PTSD. He also helped build the evidence that PTSD could be treated successfully with exposure therapy, which is now used widely in VA.

The Barnwell Award recognizes senior VA investigators who have achieved international acclaim for clinical research accomplishments in areas of prime importance to VA's research mission, and who have also shown great commitment to patients.

VA established the award in 2007 to honor educator and physician-scientist Dr. John Blair Barnwell, who was the director of research and education for the Veterans Administration (now the Department of Veterans Affairs) in the 1940s.

Please see "A Chat with our Experts" in this issue of VARQU for more on Keane's work.
