NHRC was established in June 1959 as the U.S. Navy Medical Neuropsychiatric Research Unit (NMNPRU). The first formal longitudinal research study started in spring 1960. In 1974, by authority of the Chief of Naval Operations, NMNPRU was redesignated as NHRC, with the mission to study military medical and psychological aspects of health and performance. We are one of the eight laboratories within the Navy Medicine Research & Development Enterprise. Together, we support military mission readiness with research and development that delivers high-value, high-impact solutions to the health and readiness challenges our service men and women.
