Aerospace Medical Research Team
Our Research Focus
The Aerospace Medicine Team conducts medical and laboratory studies
of aircraft accident victims, including onsite participation in selected
cases, to analyze medical, engineering, and human factors findings gained
from such cases, and conducts appropriate research into the relationships
of such findings to the safe operation of aircraft.
This team develops methods for the better understanding of such factors in
aircraft accidents and studies performance decrements resulting from disease
processes to determine their effects on aviation safety. Also the team maintains a
comprehensive data base pertaining to cockpit and cabin safety-related
factors in general aviation and transport aircraft. This research may
incorporate aircraft and simulators.
