Military Medical Innovation Operational Forum


The Military Medical Innovation Operational (MIO) forum is a collaboration between the North Carolina Military Business Center, Womack Army Medical Center (WAMC), North Carolina Defense Technology Transition Office (DEFTECH), and Fayetteville Technical Community College (FTCC).

The forum aims to forge collaborations between WAMC and academia, industry, and military partners to yield actionable results, including joint submissions for federal grant funding. The goal is to increase the success rate of grant applications by informing partners of the types of high-yield research proposals.

This forum will bring together subject matter experts (SMEs) with years of research and grant experience to discuss research opportunities in behavioral health, traumatic brain injury, prolonged field care, automation, human performance, musculoskeletal injuries, large observational data, pain, and others.

The key component of the MIO forum will be the opportunity for attendees to rotate between tables hosted by SMEs. Attendees will participate in substantive discussions leading to collaborative future engagements.

Following the MIO-Forum, industry, academic, and military partners may submit research proposals to Womack Army Medical Center (WAMC) by March 8, 2024. This email box can also be used to ask questions during this submission phase. WAMC will review all proposals and respond to submitters within 45 days.


Parking is available in parking lots: 4, 6, 10.
