The U.S Army Aeromedical Research Laboratory unveiled its new Army aeromedical research exhibit Dec. 6. The exhibit focuses on USAARL’s research divisions and their missions, capabilities, competencies, and future directions.
The exhibit features USAARL’s contributions to aeromedical research beginning in the 1960s, when the Laboratory opened its doors, to the present day. Many of these contributions significantly impacted the lives of Service Members worldwide.
“It is my hope that when walking through this display, visitors to USAARL will learn about the meaningful contributions the Laboratory has made to the U.S. Army, and that the visitors get a sense of the impact USAARL will have on the Soldiers and aircrews in the future,” said Col. Richard Malish, USAARL commander. “The exhibit will both inform visitors about our current research efforts and inspire the next generation of medical advancement and life-saving innovation.”
USAARL’s scientists and engineers place at the forefront of their research mission the safety, health, and well-being of Service Members. By doing so, Lab personnel conduct relevant research that minimizes health hazards to Service Members and ultimately improves the effectiveness of operational military medicine.
