Armored Medical Research Laboratory

The Armored Medical Research Laboratory (AMRL) was a U.S. Army medical research facility maintained at Fort Knox, Kentucky from 1942 to 1961 to solve environmental problems encountered by soldiers in tanks.

Mission

Ultimately, the mission of the AMRL was expanded to include research on heat acclimation, physical fitness, nutrition, burns and foot disabilities as applied to soldiers.

Merge

Finally, elements of the AMRL merged with the Environmental Protection Research Division (EPRD) of the U.S. Army’s Quartermaster Research and Engineering Command in 1961 to constitute what is now the United States Army Research Institute of Environmental Medicine (USARIEM) at Natick, MA.
