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 

To get a clearer idea about what we do, you can review some of our research projects.

We take rolling applications for our team of Student Interns/Research Fellows. Learn more about this unique and challenging opportunity or visit the Cook County Health Job Page and search keyword “trauma” to find our Student Intern/Research Fellow listing to submit your application.
