The research program in the Department of Emergency Medicine at Rhode Island, Hasbro Children's, The Miriam, and Newport Hospital was established by UEMF to support investigator-initiated research and pharmaceutical, biologic and biomedical device trials. The program is overseen by Dr. Gregory Jay, Vice Chair for Research and Dr. Francesca Beaudoin, Director of Clinical Research.
The program is supported by a Research Program Administrator, two pre-award Research Administrators, a Clinical Research Supervisor, and a staff of Clinical Research Assistants. The department maintains clinical research space within the Anderson and Hasbro EDs as well as fully-equipped basic science laboratories, and has ongoing collaborations with Brown University and other hospital departments.
The main focus areas of the Department of Emergency Medicine research program are (1) injury prevention and control, (2) cardiovascular, neurologic, and resuscitation science, (3) pediatric, age, and gender specific care, and (4) healthcare systems science.
