Leidos will research the effects of deployments, and career experiences, on the physical and mental health of service members and their families, a scheme created by NHRC to optimise the operational health and readiness of military members.

The research will focus on the long-term effects of service, such as:

  • Identifying specific risk factors for retention and readiness;
  • Reproductive health effects;
  • The physical and mental health effects of current and former service members and their families;
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder;
  • Biological markers related to traumatic brain injury; and
  • Other deployment health-related concerns.

"Research programs like this allow Leidos to form important and lasting partnerships with our customers so that we can work together to analyse and address complex problems," said Leidos health group president Jon Scholl.
