Research and Surveillance

The EACE Research and Surveillance Division supports the mission of the EACE by identifying relevant research gap areas, directing and executing a patient-centric intramural research program within the Amputee Care Centers (ARCs), and providing coordination and oversight for extramural research initiatives approved for conduct within the military treatment facilities (MTFs). 

The EACE also works closely with Veteran's Affairs (VA), Medical Research and Materiel Command (MRMC), Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), and other Centers of Excellence (CoEs) to assure research outcomes from intramural and extramural efforts are translated to clinical practice through the dissemination of salient findings to key stakeholders.
