FREDERICK, Md. (March 22, 2024) Dr. Kimberly Bishop-Lilly, department head of Naval Medical Research Command (NMRC)’s Genomics & Bioinformatics department, discusses sequencing work with research assistant Maren Fitzpatrick and research associate Andrea Luquette. Genome sequencing provides infectious disease data that help NMRC scientists identify rare disease variants, trace the origin and spread of outbreaks, identify whether a given microorganism is resistant to medical countermeasures, and if so, identify which genes make the organism resistant. This information can aid development of new countermeasures for health concerns like multidrug resistant trauma-related infections. NMRC conducts medical research, development, testing, evaluation and surveillance to optimize health, operational readiness and performance of Navy, Marine Corps and joint force personnel; delivering world-class, operationally relevant medical solutions to enhance warfighter readiness through research & development.
