The Military Operational Medicine Research Program (MOMRP), United States Army Medical Research and Materiel Command (USAMRMC), manages an extensive portfolio of research aimed at developing effective countermeasures against stressors to maximize health, performance and well-being throughout the Deployment Cycle. The broad program is organized into four program areas: Injury Prevention and Reduction, Psychological Health and Resilience, Physiological Health, and Environmental Health and Protection. Each area represents efforts to develop guidelines and criteria to predict, prevent and mitigate physical and psychological injury and contribute to the shared responsibility of enabling our Armed Forces and providing them with the best care possible.
The MOMRP conducts collaborative research with university and commercial laboratories and other federal agencies oriented toward solving critical problems facing the Army today and in the future. Service- and platform-specific issues are addressed through close coordination with Navy and Air Force counterparts to prevent duplication of effort. The MOMRP uses an independent, external scientific peer review process to ensure high quality and validity of its research, peer review of milestone accomplishments and to prepare these findings for publication in the open scientific literature.
The MOMRP is centered on cutting-edge scientific research and bringing science to the Soldier on the battlefield in a relevant, timely manner. The MOMRP depends on a phenomenal cadre of dedicated scientists and engineers who continuously and tirelessly work to protect the Nation’s most valuable asset – the Warrior.
Science to Soldier is our focus
