Welcome to the Wounded Warrior Recovery Project

The Wounded Warrior Recovery Project (WWRP) is a long-term research study being conducted by the Naval Health Research Center (NHRC). Funding support comes from the Navy Bureau of Medicine and Surgery (BUMED) under the Wounded, Ill, and Injured (WII) program, as well as the DoD/VA Extremity Trauma and Amputation Center of Excellence (EACE). The goal of the project is to discover the long-term effects of injury on the quality of life of wounded U.S. Army, Marine Corps, Navy, Air Force, Reserve, and National Guard personnel.

The WWRP is strongly supported by the DoD Office of Warrior Care Policy (Click here to read).

The WWRP is helping to make every experience count.
