National Trauma Institute Announces $600,000 in Funding for Trauma Research
Date:10/16/2009

SAN ANTONIO, Oct. 16 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The National Trauma Institute, a national non-profit organization dedicated to funding trauma research in the United States, announced its first Request for Proposals (RFP) for research projects that have high potential to change medical practice and save lives.

The organization will award up to $600,000 for clinical or translational research to take place in 2010. "Historically, trauma research has been extremely underfunded, so this announcement is significant, and has been welcomed by the trauma research community," said Sharon Smith, executive director of the National Trauma Institute. "We are now able to fund substantial projects that could improve the outcomes for people affected by trauma."

The National Trauma Institute is funding research that focuses on one or more of its priority areas: hemorrhage control, resuscitation, control of shock, coagulopathy, burn treatment, elimination of hospital-acquired infection, airway and ventilation management, new technology for trauma, and disaster preparedness.

This round of research funding resulted from Congressional support requested by Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison and Rep. Lamar Smith.

Researchers interested in responding to the RFP are required to submit pre-proposals to NTI by Friday, October 30, 2009.
