Our research efforts focus on our four service lines: orthopaedics, burns, spinal cord injury and cleft lip and palate. Our health care system has been a leader in burn research for decades. Here is a look at research efforts under way at our research centers that focus on understanding the impact and implications of severe burns in order to enhance and improve treatments for these complex injuries. Turning Discoveries into Therapies The multidisciplinary research activities at the Shriners Hospitals for Children — Boston research center are at the forefront of innovation in regenerative medicine and stem cells, wound healing, metabolism, nanotechnology and microfluidics, and immunology/inflammation/ infection to advance the health of injured and sick children. The research program focuses on academic discoveries, and transforming promising discoveries into therapies, devices, and diagnostics. Advancing Clinical Care The continuing themes of the Shriners Hospitals for Children — Cincinnati research center are wound healing, immunology, inflammation, infection and nutrition, all of which play critical roles in recovery from burn injury. Since its establishment nearly 50 years ago, the efforts of the Cincinnati hospital’s research department have resulted in major advances in clinical care of burn and trauma patients throughout the world. For example, several recent analyses have shown that when the diets developed at the Cincinnati Shriners Hospital are used in patients with burn injuries undergoing major operations, the incidence of wound infection is decreased by close to 50 percent and hospitalization is decreased by approximately three days. These two major advances in the care of children with burn injuries have resulted in almost uniform survival of children with extensive burn injuries treated at the Cincinnati hospital over the last several years. The Importance of Data and Evaluation Since the 1960s, researchers at Shriners Hospitals for Children — Galveston have improved care for severe burn injuries through their contributions in six core research areas: cardiopulmonary injury, metabolism, immunology and sepsis, molecular physiology responses, exercise/rehabilitation and psychosocial support of burn survivors. The most recent significant research outcomes include the improvement in models of measurement of protein, fat and skin metabolism, as well as in the evaluation and identification of scarring post burn injury. Progress that has been made through clinical research includes the discovery of glucose and insulin metabolism changes post burn, improvement in evaluation and treatment of inhalation injuries, and an understanding of the use of virtual reality methods during rehabilitation interventions and wound management. A Commitment to Improving Lives All of our researchers are dedicated to discovering answers to complex medical questions and developing new treatment strategies. The researchers do so with the goal of improving the care, treatment, and quality of life of our patients, and of other burn survivors throughout the world.
