Defense Medical Research and Development
Each of these major research program areas is strategically guided by a committee, called a Joint Program Committee, or JPC, which consists of Department of Defense (DoD) and non-DoD medical and military technical experts. These experts work through coordinated efforts to translate guidance into research and development needs. They also have key responsibilities for making funding recommendations and providing program management support. Within the USAMRMC, operational support for the JPCs is provided by multiple execution agents, including the CDMRP, individual laboratories, and advanced developers. CDMRP provides program and award management support primarily for basic through translational research (Program Elements 6.1 through 6.3) and also works closely with the JPCs to transition products to advanced development.
