Page 33 of 39 32 | Combat & Casualty Care | Summer 2016 USARIEM is working with Massachusetts General Hospital to study environmental injury pathophysiology and biomarkers. Prime examples of collaborations with universities include a study of effects of heat stress and loads on performance with Idaho State University, a biomechanics and injuries study with Wake Forest University and collaborative studies to support safe, sustainable weight management in military personnel and their beneficiaries with Tufts University. USARIEM also partners with Federal Labs and other government organizations to produce important research and guidance aimed at Soldier readiness. Recent collaborations include an ongoing relationship in Consortium for Health and Military Performance, Center Alliance for Dietary Supplement Research with the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences, studies on the impact of Marine Corps recruit training on nutritional status and performance with the Marine Corps at Parris Island, and multiple biomarker studies with the DoD Military Working Dog Veterinary Service. Guiding for Proactive Heath Awareness The key product USARIEM provides to the Soldier is guidance. By leveraging its professional workforce and one of a kind facilities USARIEM produces important products, including performance optimization doctrine, preventive medicine and planning doctrine, materiel development support, physiological monitoring strategies and predictive algorithms, and health hazard assessments. This guidance is the result of years of more than 50 years of researching and answering military relevant questions. Our researchers have produced training policy and guidelines that provide recommendations to enhance warfighter capabilities and reduce health risks, and preventive medicine guidelines to minimize warfighter injuries and lost duty time and medical costs. USARIEM also recommends product improvements for clothing, equipment, nutrition and pharmaceuticals by providing design Command Profile USARIEM Marilyn Sharp, the Physical Demands Study's principal investigator from U.S. Army Research Institute of Environmental Medicine, looks on as a Soldier begins one of the validation tests of the study.
