Burn and Shock Trauma Institute

The Burn and Shock Trauma Institute is a unique community of scientists and clinicians devoted the study of traumatic injury. A multidisciplinary research institute, our programs include both clinical and laboratory research relevant to trauma injury and burns. In our laboratories, our scientists investigate the body's reaction to injury and infection, with the hope that their research findings may someday lead to innovative therapies for trauma and burn patients.
