About Us

MTOP was founded around a group of researchers from the Medical College of Wisconsin, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, Marquette University and the Milwaukee VA.

Our team’s expertise spans neurobiological, cognitive, behavioral, social, and intervention science. The current core membership provides a strong foundation in neurobiological and psychological mechanisms that predict risk and resilience in the aftermath of trauma, validated interventions for post traumatic stress, socio-environmental influences on trauma outcomes, and emotion dysregulation in post traumatic stress conditions. Several of these researchers also provide direct clinical care to survivors of recent trauma and those with chronic PTSD.

Our team is committed to amplifying the voices of those with lived trauma experiences through community partnerships and public dissemination of research results.
