Armed Forces Radiobiology Research Institute

Armed Forces Radiobiology Research Institute (AFRRI) is a unique national asset responsible for preserving and protecting the health and performance of U.S. military personnel that operate in potential radiologically contaminated multi-domain conventional or hybrid battle spaces as well as urban environments.Through research, education, and operational training, AFRRI helps advance understanding of the effects of ionizing radiation in line with the 21st century dynamic threat landscape and national security threats posed by no-state actors, hostile state actors, and near-peer adversaries.AFRRI also provides rapidly deployable radiation medicine expertise to a radiological or nuclear event domestically or abroad.Our commitment is to be medically prepared to save lives and achieve long term health outcomes, while preserving operational forces' resilience and fighting strength in the event of adversarial use of nuclear weapons.
