Our mission is to innovate and transform defense health research by growing impactful scientific programs that save and enhance the lives of service members, their families, and the communities they serve.

The Metis Foundation strives to advance military medicine through providing scientific, education, financial and project management support in the conduct of federally and privately sponsored research, clinical trials and education.

We owe many breakthroughs in healthcare to people dedicated to research. There is however, decreasing interest secondary to fiscal and financial constraints. Talents are lost, especially among young researchers and clinician researchers.

We were created on behalf of these researchers, and it is our mission to see these researchers flourish and advance military medicine. We were founded to see a change in the lives of those who improve the lives of patients. Find out how we can help.
