The intent of the Surgical Research Team was improve survival rate and care of wounded soldiers by researching battle injuries, response to injuries, resuscitation tools and methods used in the field, at battlefront aid stations and mobile medical units.

The team established its major unit at the 46th Surgical Hospital (8209 Mobile Army Surgical Hospital) about 8 to 10 miles behind the front.

The Departments of Chemistry, Bacteriology and Pathology of the 406th Medical General Laboratory in Tokyo made their personnel and facilities available to participate in certain major aspects of the program, and the Department of Chemistry at the Army Medical Service Graduate School, the Mass Spectrometry Section of the National Bureau of Standards, and the Department of Surgery of Walter Reed Army Hospital agreed to participate in several of the analytical and clinical follow-up problems respectively.
