The Military Operational Medicine Research Program (MOMRP) provides biomedical "skin-in" solutions that protect soldiers and enhance their performance in the face of multiple stressors in operational and training environments. It is a unique biomedical research program with relevant core capabilities, a problem-solving orientation, and a human physiology research focus. Through its core and collaborative research projects, the MOMRP delivers the highest quality biomedical research solutions to meet the Armyís present and future needs.
Relevant core capabilities - by maintaining core biomedical research capabilities in the areas of environmental medicine and bioenergetics, neuropsychological stress and performance, and injury sciences and systems hazards, the MOMRP can provide "best available" answers for immediate military issues.
Problem solving orientation - the MOMRP is oriented toward solving critical problems facing the Army today and in the future. This problem-solving orientation sets the MOMRP apart from university and commercial laboratories whose research priorities are influenced by academic interests or profit potential.
Human physiology research focus - the MOMRP is focused on multistressor interactions involving human tolerances, metabolic physiology, and brain function. The MOMRP represents unique expertise in health and performance effects of multiple interacting operational hazards and stressors.
Coordinated research approach - the MOMRP closely coordinates with Navy and Air Force research programs to address Service- and platform-specific issues and prevent duplication of effort. The MOMRP has also established strong collaborative research relationships with other government agencies, commercial research facilities, and university laboratories.
Quality biomedical research - the MOMRP uses the external peer review process to ensure the scientific quality and validity of the research. MOMRP research is peer reviewed by members of the scientific community who are independent of the Department of Defense. Additionally, MOMRP scientists publish their research findings in the open, peer reviewed scientific literature.
Research product transitions - the MOMRPís biomedical research products have diverse applications that transition to Army planners, doctrine and materiel developers, and the Army medical community. These products also find Service-specific applications elsewhere in the DoD. Example MOMRP products include physiological response and injury prediction tools, biomedically-based equipment design specifications and use guidelines, behavioral models and mental status assessment measurement techniques, and health risk assessment methods.
