Military Nutrition (MND)

Conducts research that provides the biomedical science and basis for developing new rations, menus policies, and programs that enable Warfighter health and performance. MND evaluates Warfighter nutritional status and examines interactions between nutrition, health, performance, and the operational environment.

Performance & Recovery Nutrition • Military Feeding & Combat Ration Support • Dietary Supplements • Physiological Resilience

Military Performance (MPD)

Conducts research to characterize, improve, and optimize Warfighter performance of military tasks and missions to prevent or mitigate performance decrements due to military-relevant threats, such as musculoskeletal injuries, physical overload, occupational operational stressors, and exposures. MPD research provides solutions that increase Warfighter readiness and deployability.

Physical Performance Optimization & Assessment • Musculoskeletal Injury Reduction • Military Biomechanics • Return-to-Duty (RTD) Strategies • Neurological Performance & Readiness • Injury & Performance Epidemiology

Learn more about MPD

Thermal & Mountain Medicine (TMMD)

Conducts research optimize and enhance physical and cognitive performance and prevent illness associated with military operations at environmental extremes, such as heat, cold, and high terrestrial altitude. TMMD research supports physiological modeling and military materiel developers of clothing, equipment, food, and pharmaceuticals.

Heat Stress • Cold Stress • Altitude & Hypoxia Stress • Hydration • Environmental Pathophysiology
