Trauma and Inflammation Research
Beginning in 2003, the Division of Surgical Research has sponsored annual "Advances in Inflammation Research" symposiums. These events include lectures from outstanding investigators in the field of inflammation, presentations by junior research faculty members, and "Meet the Professor" sessions. In addition to recruiting exceptional speakers from around the country, the division has also attracted investigators from regional research institutions including Harvard, Yale, University of Rhode Island, University of Massachusetts and Brown University-affiliated hospitals. Interactions with our faculty members and attendees have resulted in collaborative studies with members of the Brown University medical community.
