Pediatric Emergency Medicine Research

Our multidisciplinary team of physician-scientists conducts various research projects to help promote patient care and better educate families. We participate in studies funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH), pharmaceutical companies and our own investigator-initiated studies. We hope our research efforts will improve treatment for children with hard-to-treat conditions.
