Research Divisions

Biophysics & Biomedical Modeling (BBMD)

Develop and validate biomedical models to predict the effects of heat, cold, high altitude, hydration, and clothing systems and equipment on Warfighter performance.

Clothing Biophysics • Biomedical / Predictive Modeling • Physiological Monitoring

Learn more about BBMD

Military Nutrition (MND)

Conducts nutritional research that provides a biomedical science basis for developing new rations, menus, policies and programs to enable Warfighter health-readiness and optimal performance.

Nutritional Physiology • Warfighter Nutritional Requirements • Ration Evaluation • Dietary Supplements

Military Performance (MPD)

Conduct research to enhance the performance (physical, cognitive, behavioral and psychomotor) of military occupational tasks, or to prevent performance decrements due to physical overload, nutritional deprivation, environmental and operational stresses, and musculoskeletal injuries.

Physical Training / Human Performance Optimization • Musculoskeletal Injury Reduction • Military Biomechanics Research • Cognitive Performance, Decision-Making & Judgement • Injury Epidemiology • Deployment Health Protection

Learn more about MPD

Thermal & Mountain Medicine (TMMD)

Conduct research to sustain and enhance performance (physical and cognitive) and minimize medical problems associated with military operations at environmental extremes (heat, cold & high terrestrial altitude). In addition, research supports military materiel developers of clothing, equipment, food and pharmaceuticals.

Heat Stress Physiology • Cold Stress Physiology • High Altitude Physiology • Environmental Illness • Hydration
