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
