• Emergency Medicine Research

    Research faculty in the Division of Emergency Medicine at Cincinnati Children’s pursue a wide range of investigations in quality of care, injury prevention and translational research related to emergency and critical care. As part of the busiest Pediatric Emergency Department in the country, we are very active in advancing pediatric emergency medicine, both for our patients and for children worldwide. 

    Much of our research is federally and industry funded, and as part of the Cincinnati Children’s Research Foundation, our team can pursue diverse research interests. 

    And that work is often quickly translated into bedside innovation, thanks to our researchers’ close involvement with the Cincinnati Children’s emergency departments at the Burnet and Liberty campuses. Every day, our faculty see their research applied to emergency patient care, inspiring them to advance the field of pediatric emergency medicine. 

    Research Operations and Support in Emergency Medicine

    We offer investigators a significant amount of collaborative support; our clinical research infrastructure provides the tools and resources to facilitate every aspect of a clinical emergency medicine study, from idea inception to close-out. 

    Biostatistics and Data Management

    The Division of Emergency Medicine is well supported by research methodologists, with two biostatisticians, a data manager and a data analyst. These team members have supported researchers’ methodological needs for more than a decade. 

  • Research Focus Groups

    We structure our research activities into four groups: clinical, education, prevention and quality. Learn about how team members collaborate and mentor each other to provide high-quality research.
