Marina del Rey, California
The TATRC West Satellite Office, located in Marina del Rey, California, is an extension of the TATRC headquarters office. It plays a key role in research program oversight, and is tasked with managing more than 60 projects, mostly congressionally directed, representing an investment of more than $240 million.
TATRC West augments the broader mission of TATRC not only by strengthening ties with its existing research partners in the western half of the country, but also by building new collaborative relationships in the region that can help advance medical technology in support of the Warfighter. To encourage both scientific synergy and translational research, TATRC West is constantly working to establish links with other military organizations, government agencies, academia, and industry. In addition, TATRC West is building relationships with the investment community in order to promote the view of TATRC as a pipeline for emerging technologies, with the ultimate goal of a product-oriented approach to medical research. Because of its location in Southern California, TATRC West is uniquely positioned to leverage such resources that as yet remain largely untapped by the DoD medical community.
