Department Description

The Institute for Trauma Recovery is an integral part of the research arm of the Department of Anesthesiology in the School of Medicine. The Department of Anesthesiology employs more than 200, including faculty, residents, fellows, CRNAs, research faculty, nurses, technicians, and support staff. The department currently has 19 active projects with a combined budget of 28 million. The department has a history of funding received from National Institutes of Health, Department of Defense, National Institute of Justice, multiple industry sponsors as well as many private foundations and organizations.

The goal of the Institute for Trauma Recovery is to advance understanding of the biological processes mediating recovery after trauma, and to use the latest scientific technology to develop individually tailored interventions that promote rapid recovery and prevent chronic symptom development. We continuously work to create a scientific community where research scientists have the intellectual space to develop and actualize their individual leadership potential within areas of interest, while also enriching the quality of their science by collaborating with a phenomenal team of faculty and staff. Our scholarly culture is driven by our devotion to the recovery of individuals experiencing trauma.

This Innovative longitudinal research project has expanded before it has actually begun and already has a span that reaches across 8 states and includes a budget of 22 million. The range and scope of the project is expected to grow as additional public/private partnerships are finalized. The purpose of the study is to address knowledge gaps and fundamentally advance the field by: identifying and characterizing discrete adverse posttraumatic neuropsychiatric sequelae (APNS) constructs across units of analysis; testing a set of carefully selected, “high-yield” hypotheses regarding relationships between pre-existing, trauma-related, and recovery-related factors that contribute to the initiation and maintenance of discrete APNS. Developing ED-based algorithms is critical given that many patients who come to the ED after TE do not have health insurance or a regular source of healthcare and/or do not seek or receive adequate care. This landmark study will bring together unprecedented resources to study APNS trajectories and pathogenesis.
