Division Mission:

To foster emergency medicine research through building and maintaining a pro-research culture, a robust and accessible research infrastructure, transdisciplinary and transinstitutional collaborations, and effective mentorship. 

The Research Division continues with its strong track record of internationally recognized research.  We currently have several NIH-funded investigators, which is very rare in departments of emergency medicine; in 2020 4 of our faculty were in the top 100 for NIH funding (Drs. Edwin Boudreaux, Stephanie Carreiro, John P. Haran, & Celine Larkin); source: Blue Ridge Institute for Medical Research.  Also in 2020, UMass Chan Medical School ranked in the top 10 NIH-funded emergency medicine departments in the country at #2; source: Blue Ridge Institute for Medical Research,

Using highly innovative research strategies and the latest in advanced technology, our investigators have targeted a range of significant domains, including substance abuse, toxicology, tobacco, suicide prevention, bio-behavioral informatics, industrial engineering and process improvement, emergency ultrasound, emergency cardiology, critical care, and sepsis.  In addition to completing their own research, the faculty has mentored medical students, residents, and fellows, in research design, methodology, statistics, grantsmanship, and scientific writing.
