Research Programs


A wide variety of clinical research activities are underway in Temple University School of Medicine's Department of Emergency Medicine, reflecting the diverse interests of our faculty and residents. Several Emergency Medicine faculty members have been awarded federal grants. The Department is well-represented at national Emergency Medicine research meetings.


Temple University students and Temple University Health System resident physicians are invited and encouraged to participate in research projects under the guidance of Emergency Medicine faculty in on-going studies and to develop independent research projects. Opportunities for interdepartmental collaborative research efforts and for basic science research exist within Temple University School of Medicine. Resources are available to support student and resident research both in the Department and throughout the School of Medicine and Health Sciences Campus.


The Department of Emergency Medicine has active research programs in emergency ultrasound; acute neurological illness and injury such as acute stroke, status epilepticus, and traumatic brain injury; critical illness; emerging infectious diseases; and advances in asthma care.





Emergency Medicine will receive $2.9 million from the NIH to test the effectiveness of new treatments for neurological emergencies affecting children or adults, which include traumatic brain injuries, head trauma, seizures, stroke, meningitis and spinal cord injuries. The ten-year project will bring together 11 national sites. The collaborative effort involves emergency physicians, neurologists, neurosurgeons, trauma surgeons, interventional radiologists, rehabilitation therapists and pediatricians.
