Luna Labs to Present Antivenom, Burn Relief, Ocular Repair, and Medical Simulation Technologies at MHSRS 2018

The Military Health System Research Symposium (MHSRS) continues to be the Department of Defense’s premier scientific meeting that focuses on unique medical needs and innovations for the Warfighter. The annual MHSRS conference offers a collaborative environment for the exchange of information between military providers with deployment experience, research and academic scientists, international partners, and industry experts on research and related health care initiatives. Topic areas include Combat Casualty Care, Military Operational Medicine, Clinical and Rehabilitative Medicine, Military Infectious Disease, Medical Simulation and Information Sciences. The four-day educational symposium is expected to draw approximately 2,900 attendees from various backgrounds and will be held 20-23 August at the Gaylord Palms Resort & Convention Center in Kissimee, FL.

Luna’s Health Sciences Group will be presenting four technologies at this year’s meeting. These projects, which are at various stages of development, include technologies aimed at creating broad spectrum antivenom, locally treating pain from burn wounds, stabilizing traumatic open globe ocular injuries, and delivering unique medical simulation solutions. The range of topics presented by Luna at MHSRS is representative of the diverse and promising biomedical development efforts underway at Luna Labs (the Technology Development Division of Luna Innovations).  Poster session information is listed below – please join Matthew Patterson, Matthew DeWitt, Zack Zhou and Lindsay Woodard of Luna’s Health Science group to learn more about how Luna is addressing critical biomedical needs for the US military.
