    SAN DIEGO, CA - The MHSRS is the Department of Defense’s premier scientific meeting. It provides a venue for presenting new scientific knowledge resulting from military medical research and development. Naval Health Research Center, a tenant command of Navy Base Pt. Loma, has submitted and successfully been approved, to make the most presentations at the conference (51), in its history. Coincidently, three of the submissions have been identified as plenary presentations for the more than 3,000 attendees.
     
     
    “We have a talented group of researchers here, and the quality of their research is certainly reflected in the presentations they will be making this year.  I am happy that so many will have the opportunity to share their work and meet with colleagues at this year’s conference,” remarks Dr. Kenneth Earhart, Chief Science Executive, NHRC.
     
     
    Some of the research topics to be presented at the conference are studies on deployment health, to include PTSD, combat injuries and rehabilitation relating to amputee care, logistical mapping through data-driven science, to family deployment readiness.
     
     
    Captain Marshall Monteville, Commander, NHRC, comments, “much of the work we do, has a direct and positive impact on the well-being of our entire military family, and that makes me proud to command this  group of extraordinary professionals.”  
     
     
    The NHRC mission is to focus on the unique medical needs of our nation’s warfighter and family, by conducting cutting-edge research and development. NHRC’s team of distinguished scientists and researchers consists of active duty service members, federal civil service employees and contractors, whose expertise includes physiology, microbiology, psychology, epidemiology, and biomedical engineering.
