Partners & Collaborators


Federal & non-Federal Partner Institutions

Established in 2013 and funded by the Department of Defense’s Defense Health Agency, we are a collection of seven Federal and non-Federal entities: three DoD-funded entities, two civilian academic institutions and trauma centers, an organization that creates foundational mathematics, and a foundation devoted to military medical research.


  • Uniformed Services University (USU)
  • Walter Reed National Military Medical Center (WRNMMC)
  • Naval Medical Research Center (NMRC)


  • Emory University School of Medicine
  • Duke University School of Medicine
  • DecisionQ
  • Henry M. Jackson Foundation for the Advancement of Military Medicine (HJF)


In addition to collaborating with other USU Centers, we collaborate with non-USU partners including:

  • Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL)
  • University of Pittsburgh
  • University of South Florida
  • Brooke Army Medical Center (BAMC)
  • Indiana University
  • Johns Hopkins University
  • University of California, Davis
  • University of Alabama
  • LifeBell

These active laboratories, as well as two molecular core laboratories at USU’s Bethesda campus, and labs at the Naval Medical Research Center, Duke University, and Emory University, leverage a growing data bank of about 1,800 patients to aggressively develop nine additional predictive algorithms for conditions associated with a high-risk of morbidity and/or mortality.

The results: the development of clinical and biomarker driven Clinical Decision Support Systems (CDSS) used to improve the quality and reduce the cost of care in critically ill patients for the benefit of both military and civilian health care systems.
