Research Participation Program at the U.S. Army Medical Research Institute of Chemical Defense (USAMRICD)

Funding Agency:
Oak Ridge Associated Universities

The U.S. Army Medical Research Institute of Chemical Defense (USAMRICD) is the nation's leading science and technology laboratory in the area of medical chemical countermeasures research and development. With sophisticated laboratories located at Aberdeen Proving Ground, Maryland, USAMRICD manages a diversified portfolio of medical chemical warfare agent research projects for the Department of Defense and other Federal Agencies. Our strategic plan relies on the continued outstanding performance of our scientists and support personnel and their abilities to exceed expectations on customer directed research projects. As the Department of Defense's lead laboratory for the development of medical countermeasures against chemical threat agents, the U.S. Army Medical Research Institute of Chemical Defense (USAMRICD) is increasingly called upon to provide expert analytical and consultative services related to medical chemical defense research and to the medical management of chemical casualties. The Institute’s growing national and international customer base includes other government agencies, academia, pharmaceutical companies and commercial enterprises. To fulfill this expanding mission, the USAMRICD has established an Office of Consultative Services (OCS). The OCS represents a core capability of the Institute and formalizes the consultative process by integrating the service into our business operations. Fees for services are necessary to reimburse the Institute for the time and effort required to research and answer queries.
