Cook County Research continues to advance the science of medicine

The Department of Trauma & Burn conducts clinical and basic science research with its academic partners. The needs of patients drive research at the Cook County Trauma & Burn Unit. As doctors treat patients and see opportunities for advancing patient care, they work together through research to develop new and improved diagnostic tools, devices, treatment protocols and more.

The department’s unique culture of collaboration and teamwork makes it possible to quickly bring proven diagnostics and therapeutics to patients and share this knowledge with the next generation of doctors and scientists.

The results?  Fresh answers. Improved patient care. Better health.
