Symposium to explore broadening partnerships to spur medical advances for war injuries
Date:7/27/2010

ROCKVILLE, Md. (July 27, 2010)The USU-HJF Military Medicine Symposium will gather prominent civilian and military researchers and clinicians from across the United States to discuss current research and identify opportunities to collaborate and share information that could speed treatments to wounded warriors. The symposium also will bring together a broad spectrum of participants from military health leadership, federal agencies and private research institutions to philanthropists and charitable foundations, representatives of industry, and policymakers.

Co-hosted by the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences (USU) and the Henry M. Jackson Foundation for the Advancement of Military Medicine, Inc. (HJF), the symposium will be held Sept. 23 at the Omni Shoreham Hotel in Washington, D.C. Organized through HJF's Center for Public-Private Partnerships, the symposium encourages military-civilian collaboration as a means of expanding resources for the military medical system and of spurring advances in medical technology to benefit wounded, ill and injured servicemembers.

The 2010 symposium will be made up of three expert-discussion panels on regenerative medicine, suicide prevention and resilience, and civilian-military collaborations. The final panel will be comprised of a variety of prominent leaders in military medicine.

Regenerative Medicine

Opening speaker Army Colonel Robert Hale, D.D.S., chief of oral and maxillofacial surgery at San Antonio Military Medical Center, will address the potential role regenerative medicine could play in treating wounded warriors with disabling cranial, jaw and facial injuries. Commissioned in the U.S. Army Reserves in 1977, Hale was called to active duty in 2003, serving tours in Afghanistan and Iraq.

Following Hale's presentation, a panel on regenerative medicine will feature experts from the Armed Forces Institute of Regenerative Medicine, USU's Center for Neuroscien
