Womack Army Medical Center

The Geneva Foundation and Womack Army Medical Center participated in a BRITE (Biomanufacturing Research Institute and Technology Enterprise)-Womack Translational Research Development Day on 30 September 2015.

Nine Womack Army Medical Center physicians participated along with Dr. Choi and Dr. Berry-Caban from the Department of Clinical Investigation. Dr. Juan Ortiz and Dr. Capo-Aponte, two current Geneva awardees were in attendance. Representing Geneva was Client Relationship Manager, Jennifer Johnson. North Carolina Central University (NCCU)-BRITE’s Interim Director Mrs. Anita Jackson, MD hosted the meeting. Nine faculty from the BRITE Center gave short presentations of the current research to hopefully partner/collaborate with a Womack physician. Research ideas ranged from lipid metabolism, neurotoxicity of warfare, breast cancer and the microenvironment to diabetes effects on cerebral stoke. The purpose of the meeting was to build a research relationship with BRITE faculty and also for our doctors to have access to bench laboratories and animal model facilities. Geneva participated in a strategic research roundtable: Successful Collaborative Grantmanship.
