Broadly, TATRCs aim is to explore science and engineering technologies ahead of programmed research, leveraging other programs and collaborative relationships to provide maximal benefit to military medicine. Simultaneously, TATRC aims to be the government model of opportunity-driven research agility. To that end, TATRC invests in cutting-edge technologies, through congressionally directed and other funding programs, and works in other ways with research partners nationwide to develop key products and research outcomes to support military medicine. TATRC is headquartered at Fort Detrick, Maryland, but also has a Field Office in Marina del Rey, California. Part of the strategy behind establishing TATRC West and the other field offices was not only to enable TATRC to establish closer ties with its existing research partners in the western half of the country, but also to build new collaborative relationships that can help advance medical technology in support of the soldier.
