The Academy of Military Medical Sciences (AMMS) of the PLA Academy of Military Science (Chinese: 中国人民解放军军事科学院军事医学研究院) is a Chinese military medical research institute.[1][2] It was established in Shanghai in 1951.[3] It has been based in Beijing since 1958.

In October 2011 the drug "Night Eagle", developed to help soldiers cope with sleep deprivation during missions, was unveiled in an exhibition marking the institute's 60th anniversary.[4]

In December 2014, the Chinese government announced that the Academy of Military Medical Sciences had developed an Ebola virus vaccine candidate that had been approved for clinical trials.[1][2]
