About

The Henry M. Jackson Foundation for the Advancement of Military Medicine, Inc. (HJF) is a private, not-for-profit organization authorized by Congress to support medical research and education at the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences and throughout the armed forces. Headquartered in Bethesda, Maryland, our employees work in the United States and around the world.

Our global organization serves military, medical and government clients by administrating and supporting scientific programs that benefit service members, veterans and civilians alike. HJF has met the needs of its customers since 1983—providing scientific and research management, infrastructure, and staff recruitment to researchers, clinicians and educators around the world. HJF also facilitates the exchange of expertise and information between the military and private sectors by serving as a vital link between the military medical community and our federal and private partners.

Our mission has placed us where medicine and science are most needed: advanced surgery, biomedical defense, combat injury, emergency medicine, humanitarian assistance and infectious disease. We go wherever the mission takes us—to the heart of West Africa’s fight against the scourge of Ebola, to Thailand to administer an HIV vaccine clinical trial, and to Peru to track infectious disease.
