To protect the health and enhance the performance of our warfighters through focused submarine, diving and surface research solutions is the mission of the Naval Submarine Medical Research Laboratory NSMRL, located just a few hundred yards from the waterfront at Submarine Base New London, Groton, CT. One of 10 Navy Medicine Biomedical Research Labs around the world, it has directly supported Naval Submarine Forces since World War II. Yet, like the submariners it supports, the majority of NSMRLs past contributions, as well as it current work, is virtually unknown to those outside of the submarine community. In fact, even on its own base, it is not well known -- NSMRL is frequently confused with the Naval Undersea Medical Institute NUMI. Thus, to educate the broader community, this paper will describe some of the highlights of NSMRLs proud history and discuss some of its current activities.
