During the 2019 ASTMH Annual Meeting, Integrum Scientific revealed a first of its kind mobile BSL-3 lab, the first outbreak readiness and response vehicle designed specifically for on-site work in the challenging equatorial regions where research, diagnostics, and treatment are needed most. This ruggedized mobile lab aims to reduce the impact of pandemic threats in

Geneva and collaborating partners are driving military medical research by successfully 3D printing health care products such as bioactive bandages and a meniscus in an austere environment. Joel Gaston (4D Bio3, Geneva), John Getz (RoosterBio, Inc), LTC Jason Barnhill (United States Military Academy), Vincent B. Ho, (4D Bio3 Director, USU), Ken Church (nScrypt), Kelli Blaize-Wise (4D Bio3, Geneva), Linzie Wagner (4D Bio3, Geneva)
Orlando, FL-based nScrypt has partnered with the U.S. Military, the Uniformed Services University 4D Bio3 Program, RoosterBio, Inc, and Geneva to move bioprinting out of sterile biology laboratories to forward-deployed military positions. For this project, nScrypt has customized its BioAssembly Tool (BAT) bioprinter, which won the 2003 R&D 100 award and is scheduled to travel
In Spring 2019, the LT Murray Family Foundation, a charitable organization based in Washington state that primarily supports programs in the Puget Sound area, made a generous contribution to The Geneva Foundation (Geneva) in support of the first small grant competition for researchers at Joint Base Lewis-McChord (JBLM). Throughout April, Geneva received ten competitive applications
Thanks to a generous contribution from the LT Murray Family Foundation, Geneva is pleased to announce the first small grant competition for researchers at Joint Base Lewis-McChord! Geneva’s Scientific Advisory Board will be evaluating project proposals that are related to military medical research and are either pilot projects that enable the researcher to collect preliminary
The Uniformed Services University (USU) recently issued a Cooperative agreement to Geneva to facilitate the execution of the Collaboratory for Musculoskeletal Injury Rehabilitation Research (CMIRR). CMIRR is a four-year, $15M program funded by the Defense Health Agency (DHA), with the purpose of improving a rehabilitative approach to caring for military service members with musculoskeletal injury
The Fort Bragg Research Institute (FBRI) originated from the recognized need to link the vast infrastructure of science and technology regionally available to Womack Army Medical Center (WAMC) with the growing needs of operational readiness for Fort Bragg, NC. Areas of research interest include biomarker discovery for mild traumatic brain injury, machine learning to assist medics
The 4-Dimensional Bioprinting, Biofabrication, and Biomanufacturing (4D Bio3) Program is a five-year program funded by the Defense Health Program (DHP), with the purpose of promoting the development and application of advanced bioprinting, biofabrication, and biomanufacturing technologies for research pursuant to Department of Defense (DoD) priorities and ultimately for translation to clinical medical defense care and training solutions.
Geneva is proud to announce the launch of its newest program, the Fort Bragg Research Institute (FBRI). The FBRI was established to link the infrastructure of science and technology regionally available to Womack Army Medical Center (WAMC) and the increasing needs of operational readiness at Fort Bragg, NC.
