Japan-United States (US) Technical Information Exchange Forum on Blast Injury

The PCO, in collaboration with the National Defense Medical College (NDMC) (an organization of the Ministry of Defense, Japan), the US Army Research, Development and Engineering Command (RDECOM) International Technology Center-Pacific (ITC-PAC), the Office of Naval Research (ONR) Global, and the United States Air Force (USAF) Research Laboratory's Asian Office of Aerospace Research and Development, organized a Japan-US Technical Information Exchange Forum on Blast Injury, followed by a Japan-US Technical Information Exchange meeting. Blast injury researchers and clinicians from the US and Japan shared expertise, experience, and approaches to solving blast injury problems of mutual interest that identify knowledge gaps and collaborative opportunities leading to improvements in prevention, clinical diagnosis, and treatment of blast-related brain, lung, and auditory injuries.
