Mitigating the Impact of Blast-related Burn Injuries: From Prolonged Field Care to Rehabilitation and Resilience
March 3 - March 5
The 9th DoD State-of-the-Science Meeting on Blast Injury Research will be held March 3-5, 2020 in Arlington, Virginia.
The meeting will address epidemiology and outcomes of blast-related burn injuries; prevention and acute management of blast-related burn injuries; prolonged field care and chronic care; and transforming research.
This meeting is sponsored by the DoD Blast Injury Research Coordinating Office, U.S. Army Medical Research and Development Command, on behalf of the DoD Executive Agent for Medical Research for Prevention, Mitigation, and Treatment of Blast Injuries.
The event is presented by the RAND National Security Research Division (NSRD), which conducts research and analysis for all national security sponsors other than the U.S. Air Force and the Army. The division includes the National Defense Research Institute, a federally funded research and development center whose sponsors include the Office of the Secretary of Defense, the Joint Staff, the Unified Combatant Commands, the defense agencies, and the Department of the Navy. NSRD also conducts research for the U.S. intelligence community and the ministries of defense of U.S. allies and partners.
This will be a working meeting. Over 100 subject matter experts from the DoD, other Federal agencies, academia, industry, and the international community are expected to participate.
Attendance is free, first come-first serve, and capped at 150. There are no continuing education credits, and participants are responsible for their own travel, lodging, and expenses.
