By Burrell Parmer Naval Medical Research Unit San Antonio Public Affairs

Leadership, researchers, and support staff of Naval Medical Research Unit San Antonio attended the ninth edition of Mission Possible on June 13. It is an information-sharing event, held at the Tri-Service Research Laboratory.

The purpose of Mission Possible is to better inform members of the command on the tactics, techniques, and procedures of the science directorates including the resource acquisitions and administrative directorates.

Chief Science Director Dr. Darrin Frye, who recently joined the command, introduced himself and briefed the command on the past, present, and future areas of research.

Frye was followed by a presentation on the advanced development of a self-healing dental composite given by Dr. Sabrina Snyder, a research scientist, assigned to the command’s Craniofacial Health and Restorative Medicine Directorate.

The last portion of Mission Possible was presented by Dustin Poole, a financial management analyst, assigned to the command’s Resource Management and Acquisitions Directorate, who briefed members on the procedures of submitting temporary additional duty travel via the Defense Travel System.

NAMRU San Antonio’s mission is to conduct gap-driven combat casualty care, craniofacial, and directed energy research to improve survival, operational readiness, and safety of Department of Defense personnel engaged in routine and expeditionary operations.

It is one of the leading research and development laboratories for the U.S. Navy under the DoD and is one of eight subordinate research commands in the global network of laboratories operating under the Naval Medical Research Command in Silver Spring, Maryland.
