The Military Medical Operations Team at AFRRI exists to operationalize the research performed at AFRRI, and bring operational needs and issues from the force to the institute. Our Health Physicists and Radiation Trained Physicians accomplish this in two ways:

  1. Educational outreach via the Medical Effects of Ionizing Radiation (MEIR) Course
  2. Operational support via the Medical Radiobiology Advisory Team (MRAT)

Our team is available day or night to help with radiation education or emergency advice during an incident. Please contact our helpdesk by calling 301-295-2950.
