JOINT BASE SAN ANTONIO-FORT SAM HOUSTON – (April 7, 2022) – Dr. Sylvain Cardin, (second from left) chief science director of Naval Medical Research Unit (NAMRU) San Antonio, speaks with U.S. Pacific Fleet Surgeon Capt. Michael McGinnis and other science subject matter experts from Navy Medical Research Center (NMRC) and Navy Medicine on the importance of having an open line of communication between the fleet and the research community during a tour at the Battlefield Health and Trauma Building. This communication ensures that the most updated devices and surgical techniques are responding to fleet requirements. NAMRU San Antonio’s mission is to conduct gap driven combat casualty care, craniofacial, and directed energy research to improve survival, operational readiness, and safety of Department of Defense personnel engaged in routine and expeditionary operations. It is one of the leading research and development laboratories for the U.S. Navy under the DoD and is one of eight subordinate research commands in the global network of laboratories operating under NMRC in Silver Spring, Md.
