Researchers employ the Civil Aerospace Medical Institute's (CAMI) sophisticated medical equipment and facilities to focus on bioaeronautical aspects of safety and security in the NAS, including forensic toxicology, functional genomics, biochemistry, accident research, passenger and crew protection, survival research, environmental physiology, bioinformatics and vision research.

CAMI scientists also study the skills, abilities, behavior, and performance of personnel involved in aerospace operations. Researchers look for ways to optimize human performance, efficiency, and safety, through the introduction of new work station/cockpit displays and controls, and the effective selection and training of personnel operating in highly complex technological environments.

Aerospace Medical Research conducted at CAMI is enhancing human safety, health, security and survivability in civilian aerospace endeavors. Civilian aerospace safety and performance are key concerns of bioaeronautical researchers. CAMI's specialized labs and equipment enable thorough research in forensic toxicology, functional genomics, biochemistry, radiobiology, environmental physiology, and bioinformatics.

The Civil Aerospace Medical Institute is hosting a workshop titled Injury Mechanism Analysis in Aerospace Accident Investigation.

The workshop is being held November 3-4, 2015 at the Civil Aerospace Medical Institute in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. The purpose of this workshop is to provide an opportunity for the AAM research staff and other members of the aeromedical community (government, academia, and industry) to learn the best methods of forensic evidence collection in the investigation of the biomechanics and biodynamics of aircraft accident injuries and the determination of the mechanism of injuries in support of injury research.
