Health research managementA working group formed by the Defense Department and the National Institutes of Health will meet this week to identify possible collaborative research projects in human performance.

DoD and NIH established the Human Performance Optimization Working Group with the aim of developing programs designed to help military and civilian individuals manage physically and emotionally demanding situations.

Representatives from both agencies gathered Dec. 7 for a scenario-based discussion at NIH headquarters in Bethesda, Maryland.

That meeting highlighted trends related to military and medical studies of fatigue as well as differences in the selection and assessment process and cohesion in group therapy.

Noetic Corporation, a strategy and knowledge consulting firm, assisted the two government agencies in holding the event.

The naval research unit is conducting a study to determine if a drug known as modafinil could benefit fatigue-susceptible and fatigue-resistant people.

A separate study at George Mason University aims to examine the effects of haptic training on veterans and civilians with traumatic brain injury.
