Study on Trauma and Resilience 2.0 (STAR 2.0)

The Study on Trauma and Resilience 2.0 (STAR 2.0) is a study designed to assess how people’s experiences in life might impact how they recover after having a traumatic injury that requires medical care. This includes evaluating specific biomarkers (or factors related to one’s health) including information that can be gathered from blood and stool. This study enrolls participants while they are in the hospital and then calls them at 1 and 3 months after the injury to assess how the participant is doing. Finally, the participant is asked to return at 6 months to answer questions, as well as to provide one final blood and stool sample.
