Other research programs

Although extramural grants for HPE research can be difficult to attain, faculty members in HPE have been fortunate to receive funding from a number of organizations both inside and outside the Military Health System. Due in part to this extramural funding, faculty and students in HPE have the resources necessary to conduct cutting-edge HPE research.

Examples of recent extramurally funded research grants won by HPE faculty include the following:
