Bruce A. Doll, deputy commander of the U.S. Army Medical Research and Materiel Command at Fort Detrick

Doll also serves as director of the Research, Development and Acquisition Directorate for the Defense Health Agency in Falls Church, Virginia.
Rear Adm. Bruce A. Doll's first assignment with the U.S. Navy was in 1982 at the China Lake naval base in California. After which he had several different assignments in dental clinics and departments including on the USS Juneau in support of the Marines and then at the U. S. Naval Academy. In 1992 he came off of active duty and returned to school to pursue a Doctorate of Philosophy in Cell and Molecular Biology at Pennsylvania State University. After completing his degree, he stayed on reserve duty and lead several dental battalions and then at the National Naval Medical Center. Doll deployed to Germany in joint support of Landstuhl Regional Medical Center during Operation Enduring Freedom/Operation Iraqi Freedom. After which he served as the NATO medical advisor and the command surgeon at U.S. Joint Forces Command. At Fort Detrick, Doll serves as the Deputy Command of the U.S. Army Medical Research and Materiel Command located at Fort Detrick and the Director of the Research, Development and Acquisition Directorate for the Defense Health Agency, located in Falls Church, Virginia. He assumed these roles in April, 2014. In these roles, Doll serves as an advocate for military health research and the coordination of joint military health efforts.

Medical R&D - U.S. Navy Rear Admiral Bruce Doll, head of the Defense Health Agency (DHA) Research, Development and Acquisition Directorate (RDA), has announced his retirement, and steps down from his position today. Under his leadership, RDA oversaw the design, prioritization and integration of medical research, development and acquisition programs across the continuum of care within the medical research community.

Those advances in theater medicine, as with most gains involving military medical research, relied on collaboration - between branches of service, between allied forces and between military and industry, Doll said.
To reinforce the need to share life-saving and health-inducing ideas, the Defense Health Agency last month hosted a four-day Military Health System Research Symposium in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. Government and private sector experts discussed continuing progress against signature wounds of recent wars, infectious diseases and operational hazards.
"It's all about our discovery, development and deliver" of products to better care for service members, to make them more resilient in whatever environment they operate and, for the severely wounded, to restore quality of life as best as possible through timely care and rehabilitation, Doll said.
...
For Doll, the 19 percent represents "a mandate to improve our delivery of care. Though increasing "survivability in the face of severe wounds is a challenge," he said, for researchers it must remain "a very high priority."
Spending on military medical research, including combat casualty care and traumatic brain injury treatment, has leveled off. DoD's annual medical research budget, to include spending on medical information technology, has averaged $1.37 billion over the last five years.
Given tighter budgets, it's increasingly important that Army, Navy, Air Force and outside partners not move separately down the same research paths, unaware of progress made elsewhere. Doll's RDA is to prevent such overlaps as a "shared services" directorate under the two-year-old Defense Health Agency. It exists to coordinate research that benefits any military member while acknowledging that unique expertise resides in each service.
"The RDA is all about support to the services" in advancing collaborative, innovative research, he said. But to do so better, "we agree among the services there are certain practices we can consolidate."
RDA also is developing a database of research across defense components "to make sure that everybody knows what everybody is doing," Doll said. He compared it to a catalogue of expenditures and results that National Institutes of Health publishes for all NIH-funded projects.
"The economies of scale that come from this constant awareness of products being developed - and where the experts are - is something we are committed to enhancing" to improve care delivery to ill or injured and to assist warrior in achieving optimal performance in any mission environment.
"We understand that every service has certain unique areas" of expertise such as undersea medicine for Navy. In those areas "we're not looking to do anything but assist," Doll said. "They do it well."
But every member bleeds, he said. So his directorate is coordinating research to address those deaths from hemorrhaging.
"To the extent we have those types of projects, beneficial to all the services, we look to fund those and to do so consistent with the priorities that we review every year," Doll said. The U.S. military estimates that more than 300,000 service members have suffered some traumatic brain injury since 2001. About 82 percent of those cases are categorized as mild.
...
"That's the broad focus on all these topics: How does this map back to individuals on the frontline who are performing the mission," Doll said.
The U.S. military "does not lay claim to the best in its own environment of research and development. But what it does do very well, through organizations like NATO or individual nation relationships…is to look for collaboration, look for areas of expertise resident in countries that we can partner with," Doll said.
For example, the efforts of Scandinavian countries to optimize performance in cold-weather environments "become something we can learn from them and, together, move forward."
Given the number and severity of injuries in Iraq and Afghanistan, however, the U.S. military has led in developing tourniquets, medical evacuation techniques and critical refinements to trauma care.
As wounded "are moved back from the site of injury," Doll said, "their care is improving in terms of technology and expertise brought to bear" at every stage.

As wounded "are moved back from the site of injury," Doll said, "their care is improving in terms of technology and expertise brought to bear" at every stage. "As wounded are flown at relatively high altitudes in pressurized cabins, delivery of oxygen has to be tweaked."
Because transport aircraft are noisy, however, medical evacuation teams have learned to adjust oxygen using visual rather than audible alarms.
Other advancements have involved precision medicine, such as the monitoring of protein levels to detect if a patient is still fighting infection or has entered a reparative state appropriate for closing a wound, Doll said.
Many young researchers attending last month's symposium learned for the first time how they're work might help wounded warriors. Doll said he hopes another lesson they learned is that, in doing research "you can go fast by yourself, but if you go together, you can go a lot farther."
