Advancing Blast Injury Research to Protect and Heal Those Who Serve

Participation in Research Collaboration Meetings

The Blast Injury Research Coordinating Office participates in various local, national, and international research collaboration meetings, supporting the EA responsibilities to promote information sharing, disseminate blast injury research information, and facilitate collaboration across the DoD, academia, and industry.

Military Heath System Research Symposium

The Military Health System Research Symposium (MHSRS) is the Department of Defense's premier scientific meeting. It provides a venue for presenting new scientific knowledge resulting from military-unique research and development. The MHSRS is the only military or civilian meeting that focuses specifically on the unique medical needs of the Warfighter.

Shoresh Conference on Military Medicine

Under the US/Israel Data Exchange Agreement for Military Medicine, the two countries exchange information on a broad array of medical research topic areas. One venue for this exchange of information is the Shoresh Conference on Military Medicine, that encompasses all research areas within the US Army portfolio and naval aerospace medicine, providing a joint service perspective between the US and Israel.

Military Medicine Partner Days

Military Medicine Partner Days (MMPD) is an opportunity for science and industry representatives to learn more about the DoD Research, Development, Test & Evaluation (RDT&E) missions, programs, gap areas, and the complexities of medicine within a military environment. Representatives of industry and academia can meet with DoD officials to discuss pertinent advances in medical research through advanced development, as well as explore an exhibit hall featuring current DoD sponsored products and technologies.

The 2017 MMPD was cohosted by USAMRMC and National Defense Industrial Association (NDIA) on 7-8 March 2017 in Ellicott City, Maryland. Read more...

SoS Meetings

The International State-of-the-Science (SoS) Meeting Series is a unique and enduring capability that leverages the expertise of outstanding scientists, engineers, and clinicians to identify knowledge gaps and inform future research needed to close the gaps in the prevention, mitigation and treatment of blast injury.
