The US Military as a Bioscience Resource
Medical research is conducted at multiple locations in San Antonio by the 59th Medical Wing, the Brooke Army Medical Center, the US Army Institute for Surgical Research (USAISR), and the Navy Medical Research Unit (NAMRU). Additionally, important military relevant collaborative research is conducted by the 711th Human Performance Wing Bioeffects Division. Recognizing the need for increased life science industry interactions with the military, the San Antonio Military Medicine Innovation Director supports the growing military life science ecosystem in San Antonio by facilitating partnerships and innovations that help the military meet their medical mission requirements, and at the same time, creating commercialization opportunities for the community.
Collaborations and grants can be facilitated by these organizations: the Geneva Foundation, Eagle Global Scientific, the Henry M. Jackson Foundation for the Advancement of Military Medicine, the Metis Foundation, and the Military Health & Research Foundation.
Industry Days in San Antonio are a great opportunity to meet with military leaders and researchers to learn more. Presentations from past events:
