When Soldiers rip open meals, ready-to-eat, also known as MRE, in a combat zone, most people probably are thinking more about flavor and filling their stomachs than about the nutrition.
Call it good chemistry. Researchers from the Army and Harvard Medical School are collaborating on a Department of Defense-funded study to identify chemical biomarkers that could differentiate between post-traumatic stress disorder and mild traumatic brain injury.
The U.S. Army Research Institute of Environmental Medicine, or USARIEM, once again partnered with the Norwegian Defence Research Establishment to study nutrition and physiological responses to cold-weather training.
The U.S. Army Research Institute of Environmental Medicine launched a collaborative research study with Tufts University to assess the effectiveness of two weight-loss strategies.
Over the past three years, we have averaged one story on the front page of Army.mil per week. Considering we are one of the smallest installations in the Army, that is pretty amazing. Natick has more time on the front page than the power-projection platforms of Fort Hood or Fort Drum. Natick has more time on the front page than the training bases of Fort Benning or Fort Leavenworth.
