For Immediate Release -- December 21, 2016
The U.S Army Aeromedical Research Laboratory unveiled its new Army aeromedical research exhibit Dec. 6. The exhibit focuses on the USAARL's research divisions and their missions, capabilities, competencies and future directions.
The exhibit features the 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 the 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 the 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."
The 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.
