The Joint Program Committee-8/Clinical and Rehabilitative Medicine Research Program (JPC-8/CRMRP) seeks to ethically and responsibly develop long-term strategies to find, evaluate, and fund cutting edge research in reconstruction, rehabilitation, and definitive care for injured Warfighters to improve the standard of care and outcomes, return Service members to full form and function, and ultimately restore the Warfighter to duty and improve his or her quality of life.


Currently, research sponsored by the JPC-8/CRMRP is focused on the following key areas:

  • Neuromusculoskeletal Injury Rehabilitation
  • Pain Management
  • Regenerative Medicine
  • Sensory Systems Traumatic Injury (including vision, hearing, and balance)

The JPC-8/CRMRP's mission is to focus on definitive and rehabilitative care innovations required to reset our wounded warriors, both in terms of duty performance and quality of life. The program has multiple initiatives to achieve its goals, including improving prosthetic function, enhancing self-regenerative capacity, improving limb/organ transplant success, creating full functioning limbs/organs, repairing damaged eyes, treating visual dysfunction following injury, improving pain management, and enhancing rehabilitative care.
