Research is a major component for medical advancements. Through research we are able to increase survival rates and make medical discoveries that lessen the impact of a traumatic injury. We are currently working on, but not limited to, research projects in the areas of:

  • Shock and resuscitation
  • Head, Chest, Abdominal and Pelvic injury
  • Burn injury and resuscitation¬†
  • Burn grafting and hemostasis¬†
  • Obesity and trauma
  • Elderly trauma
  • Gunshot injury and prevention
  • Public implications of the burden of injury¬†
