Research Areas

In modern medical sciences, research is necessary to achieve improved outcomes following traumatic injury. The PTRC fosters a rigorous and robust research environment to enhance and expand both the scope and quality of trauma research. It is a collaborative effort of the trauma centers in Pittsburgh, which is devoted to the promotion of research and clinical trials to evaluate preventive, therapeutic, and diagnostic interventions in trauma. The success of the PTRC relies primarily on the expertise, talents and entrepreneurial skills of its members.  If you want to contribute to trauma research or want to have further information about the research conducted at PTRC, visit the website or contact PTRC (ptrc@upmc.edu).
