The research program in the Department of Emergency Medicine at Rhode Island, Miriam, and Hasbro Children's Hospital was established by the University Emergency Medicine Foundation to support investigator-initiated, pharmaceutical, biologic and biomedical device trials.

The program is supported by a full-time clinical research coordinator, two clinical research administrators, a departmental research administrator, an administrative coordinator, and a staff of research assistants.  The department maintains clinical research space within the RIH ED as well as fully-equipped basic science laboratories, and has ongoing collaborations with Brown University and other hospital departments.  

The four main focus areas of the 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.  A complete list of peer-reviewed publications by department faculty members is listed here.
