San Francisco VA researcher receives top Veterans Affairs award

of the SFVAMC Neuroscience Center of Excellence, a research collaboration between the VA, the Department of Defense, and the Northern California Institute for Research and Education (NCIRE) that focuses on improving diagnosis and treatment of traumatic brain injury, post-traumatic stress disorder, and other neurological conditions faced by combat personnel. Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) has called the Neuroscience Center of Excellence "critical to the work of veterans' health research."

"I am honored to receive an award named after Dr. Middleton, whom I knew 35 years ago, when I was starting at the VA," said Weiner. "He was instrumental in implementing the system of affiliations between VA medical centers and medical schools, such as the affiliation between SFVAMC and UCSF. This collaboration has been of incredible mutual benefit to the VA and doctors around the United States."

Weiner noted that the award "recognizes the accomplishments of the outstanding scientists and staff, past and present, of CIND, and the continued participation of our research subjects, as well as many years of support by the VA." He also acknowledged the research support of NCIRE.

This year, for the first time, two VA researchers have been designated to receive Middleton awards and both recipients are University of California faculty members. Also being honored is Roland C. Blantz, MD, chief of nephrology at the VA San Diego Healthcare System and a professor of nephrology at UC San Diego.
