Additional $38M awarded to expand orthopedic trauma care research
Date:10/7/2010

The Center for Injury Research and Policy at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health has been awarded $38.6 million by the Peer Reviewed Orthopaedic Research Program (PRORP) of the U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) to expand its Major Extremity Trauma Research Consortium (METRC). The Consortium, which was established in September 2009 with an award of $18 million from DOD, conducts multi-center studies relevant to the treatment and outcomes of major orthopedic injuries sustained on the battlefield. The additional funding allows for growth both in the size of the Consortium and in the scope of its research.

"The initial funding was critical to establishing the consortium and providing the resources to address some of the immediate research needs of the military in the acute management of severe limb injuries," explained Ellen MacKenzie, PhD, principal investigator and the Fred and Julie Soper Professor and Chair of the Bloomberg School's Department of Health Policy and Management, the Department in which the Center for Injury Research and Policy is housed. "With the additional funding, we will be able to expand the size of the consortium to address many other priority topics of relevance to both the rehabilitation and treatment of the wounded warrior, including the prevention of bone infection, chronic pain and overall disability.

The Bloomberg School serves as the coordinating center for the Consortium that includes a network of core civilian trauma centers working together with the major military medical centers that provide treatment to service members who sustain major trauma while on active duty. Under this new award, the number of core civilian centers will increase from 12 to 24. An additional 30 satellite trauma centers around the country have pledged support for the Consortium and are eager to participate in one or more of the studies sponsored under its umbrella.
