The Center for Military Precision Health (CMPH) provides standardized genome profiling services, genomic data analysis, and genomic data storage under DoD security and privacy compliance policies, addressing 8 separate DoD requirements across the MHS while also providing education in genomic information and performing clinical implementation research in the field of genomic medicine to inform policy and clinical practice guidelines for use of genomics in the MHS. Within CMPH, the Military Cardiovascular Outcomes Research (MiCOR) program addresses gap areas identified in the Initial Capabilities Document for Cardiovascular Care.

Current Projects focus on:

  • Prevention of obesity
  • Cardiovascular consequences of traumatic brain injury and other cardiovascular outcomes
  • Integration of pharmacogenomics into the Military Health System
  • Identifying potential deleterious effects of intense endurance exercise
  • State of the art next gen sequencing and analysis of individuals with severe COVID related illness
  • Arrhythmic risk associated with COVID and its therapies (MiCOR)
  • Return to duty protocols following COVID hospitalization (MiCOR)
  • Cardiovascular outcomes and integration of pharmacogenomics into the Military Health System (MiCOR)

DOD-centric cohorts have been studied in the areas of:

  • DOD-centric cohorts have been studied in terms of their association with:
  • Posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Major depressive disorder
  • Cardiovascular disease
  • Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)
  • Lung cancer and other cancers
  • Traumatic brain injury and dementia
