Department Description:

The TRYUMPH Research Program 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 TRYUMPH Research Program 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.

The purpose of the Women’s Health Study is to demonstrate the feasibility and safety of performing longitudinal evaluations of sexual assault survivors who receive post-assault SANE (Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner) care. Data collected will provide important information regarding the recovery process after sexual assault. The data will also provide important information concerning the experiences of sexual assault survivors with law enforcement, SANE nurses, and other medical providers. This information will be used to improve the care of sexual assault survivors. The proposed study is groundbreaking in that it will be the first to evaluate mechanisms of chronic musculoskeletal pain pathogenesis after sexual assault. The knowledge gained from this study will inform the development of preventive intervention trials for a large population of women sexual assault survivors who would be willing to participate in such trials.
