PTEI administers DOD funding, identifying and recruiting teams of scientists to advance therapies so that our best and bravest receive the most modern trauma care when they are wounded in action, and the most advanced in-hospital and restorative care upon their return home.PTEI's trauma research program is the outgrowth of the urgent need for advanced trauma care by our military. There is no way to measurably improve combat casualty care or long-term restorative care following serious injury without a critical leap forward in development of new technologies and therapies for combat trauma.
PTEI's current research programs include:
Advanced Regenerative Medicine (ARM)
Armed Forces Institute for Regenerative Medicine (AFIRM)
