    Hi Dr. Tarzwell. I’m a PhD student at the University of Pennsylvania and am working with an army vet/Wharton MBA student on a startup company focused on helping doctors better diagnose PTSD/TBI. Your paper in PLoS One paper inspired us and we’d love to talk with you about the study and potential for collaboration moving forward. We look forward to hearing from you!
