The Center for Military Medicine Research
Research at the University of Pittsburgh


The Center advances medicine for wounded service members—that’s the focus of the Center for Military Medicine Research (CMMR). CMMR explores applications of regenerative medicine, reconstructive medicine, transplantation immunology, and neuroscience, including traumatic brain injury and neuroprosthetics, with the aim of getting innovative therapies to injured soldiers. The University of Pittsburgh is a leader in medical R&D and serving the needs of our military. Investment in Pitt medical research has improved the lives of military service members and their families.
