All faculty direct productive research programs in the area of trauma and organ injury. The faculty have diverse training and research expertise in physiology, molecular biology, pathophysiology, wound healing, bone metabolism and repair, endocrinology and metabolism as well as various aspects of inflammation. In addition, there is a relatively even distribution of basic and physician scientists. The training record of the faculty is exceptionally strong and diverse. We believe that the interdisciplinary approach to research and training is one of the unique strengths of our Program.
