AMED opened its Washington D.C. Office on November 1, 2016 in the center of Washington, in the District of Columbia, in an area near many of the U.S. Federal Government Offices. AMED’s office is located in a commercial office building in northwest Washington, a downtown area where numerous local and national companies and the offices of Japanese public organizations are located. AMED’s office is about only a half hour drive from the National Institutes of Health (NIH), who singed Memorandum of Cooperation with AMED dated January 11, 2016.

The expected roles of AMED’s office are cooperation and collaboration with funding agencies and institutions on medical research and development; investigation of trends in medical research; facilitating networking, and disseminating and sharing knowledge of the results of  AMED's research and development in North, Central and South America.

On October 14, 2016, a mini seminar and reception was organized at the Japanese Ambassador’s Residence, located in northwest Washington,  in commemoration of the reinforcement of relations between Japanese researchers at NIH and the opening of AMED’s Washington DC Office, a reception with more than 150 guests including Dr. Michael Gottesman, Deputy Director of the NIH. A number of Japanese and American researchers at NIH, other universities and institutions, and members of the private industrial sector exchanged their views on Japan-U.S. cooperative healthcare research.
