    During this year’s Military Health System Research Symposium, participants of the Young Investigators Competition presented a series of scientific research focused on warfighter health.
    This video features Dr. Terry Rauch, acting deputy assistant secretary of defense for Health Readiness, Policy, and Oversight, as well as the three award winners talking about their research:

    U.S. Army Capt. Joshua Boster, from Brooke Army Medical Center, Fort Sam Houston, Texas, received third place. Boster presented his research on “Bronchoalveolar Lavage Fluid Cytology of Deployed Military Personnel with Chronic Respiratory Symptoms from the STAMPEDE III Study.” Boster discussed the increased levels of airborne particulate matter in Southwest Asia and how deployed military personnel are at risk for developing acute and chronic lung disease.

    Rebecca Bieber from Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland, received second place. Her research focused on “Evaluating the Impacts of Hearing Protection on Fire Team Lethality, Survivability, Communication, and Mission Success in Dismounted Combat.” Her work collected new data by evaluating and monitoring diverse types of exercises with various hearing protections, which can help lead to better hearing protection on the battlefield.

    The first-place winner, U.S. Army Lt. Col. Jonathan Yost, from Uniformed Services University in Bethesda, Maryland, presented “Ketamine metabolite (2R, 6R)-HNK provides pain reduction via an AMPA receptor-dependent mechanism and alters AMPA receptor expression in the vIPAG.” Service members and veterans are at a higher risk of developing persistent pain conditions due to the high incidence of injuries sustained or aggravated during military duty and deployment.
