Research

One of the key responsibilities of a Level I Trauma Center is the advancement of knowledge in both the basic science and clinical aspects of traumatic injuries. As senior members of the New Jersey Medical School faculty, the medical staff of the Trauma Center also serve as physician-scientists, pursuing answers to complex issues related to the injury and recovery processes.

The Fall 2004 edition of UMDNJ Research, a publication of the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey for the nation’s researchers and other interested parties, was dedicated to the topic of trauma research. Included in that edition were several articles written by the members of the Trauma Center’s staff and their colleagues in related departments throughout the hospital/medical school:
