Biotechnology and Human Systems
Responding to global needs for improving human conditions
Our R&D seeks to improve human conditions on many fronts. The technology and systems we develop enhance disaster response capabilities, address impacts of climate change, advance defenses against biological and chemical threats, and improve the health and performance of the nation's service members and civilians.
Biotechnology and Human Systems Groups
Dedicated satellite imaging could help coordinate emergency response to disasters.
Researchers at the STRIVE Center are developing a fluid, intuitive exoskeleton system to improve the technology’s use in operational environments.
Assessment of Mild Traumatic Brain Injury
Researchers at the STRIVE Center are improving methods for identifying the mechanisms underlying balance impairments in patients with mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI).
National Demand PPE Study Web Application
The application helps users to plan pandemic response by estimating state and regional personal protective equipment (PPE) demand.
