Burn Pits 360 is thrilled to announce that we are re-naming our research program - The TSgt Amie Muller Veteran Health Research Program and Research Fund

The program is named after TSgt Amie Muller who was a U.S. Air Force veteran and an advocate for veterans' health. While still serving in the military, she dedicated herself to raising awareness about the health challenges faced by veterans, particularly those related to toxic exposures. Her advocacy was fueled by her own experiences being diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, which was believed to be linked to her time serving in Balad Iraq near the burn pits. Tragically, Amie passed away in 2017 at age 36, leaving behind three children, her husband, her loving family and an endless amount of friends.
Our Scientific Committee is composed of experts in the field of environmental health, toxicology, oncology, pulmonology, and epidemiology as well as additional healthcare professionals and advocates for military personnel and veterans. We are dedicated to understanding the health impacts of burn pit exposure and to providing the information and support that military personnel and veterans need to manage their health. The program and Scientific Committee will continue to be led by Dr. Julie Tomáška who served with TSgt Muller.
Mission: We continue to be committed to advancing the well-being of our veterans through cutting-edge research on the health impacts of military toxic exposure. Our belief is simple – those who have served our nation deserve the utmost care. Our mission is to support innovative research initiatives that explore the intricate connections between military service, toxic exposures, and the health outcomes of veterans.
Scope: Our collaborative research program is dedicated to investigating the impact of military toxic exposures on veterans' health. We're placing a special focus on deployment-related lung diseases and chronic multi-symptom illness. Through rigorous scientific inquiry and current registry data, we aim to identify and understand the various toxins encountered during deployment, assessing their long-term effects on respiratory health and overall well-being.
- Identify toxins affecting military personnel during deployment.
- Understand the long-term impact on respiratory health and overall well-being.
- Inform diagnostic protocols, therapeutic interventions, alternative treatments, and policy decisions.
