UT researchers to study massive transfusion at major trauma centers
Date:10/8/2008

ealth Information Sciences at Houston, is leading the effort to design a secure, web-based informatics system that will make it possible to collect these data by the patient's bedside. The system also will allow for subsequent data management and analysis for clinical and translational research.

Mohammad Hossein Rahbar, Ph.D., director of the CCTS's Biostatistics, Epidemiology and Research Design (BERD) Component, is the principal investigator who will establish and manage the consortium of trauma centers and coordinate the data collection, data management and statistical analysis. Deborah Del Junco, Ph.D., associate professor at the CCTS-BERD, is among the co-investigators he will work with on the project.

"It is a very ambitious, meaningful project that draws upon the talents of those who are part of the CCTS," said Rahbar, who also holds a faculty appointment at The University of Texas School of Public Health. "The findings of this study could have long-term global implications, and it will set the stage for future studies."

Peter Davies, M.D., Ph.D., the university's executive vice president of research, said, "We are delighted with the success of Dr. Rahbar and his colleagues, particularly Dr. Del Junco, in competing for this very important award. It is an outstanding example of the ways that our grant to establish the CCTS is allowing us to transform clinical and translational research at our university. In addition, with the very recent recruitment of Dr. John Holcomb to our campus and the formation of the new Center for Translational Injury Research, this PROMMTT award can serve as the foundation for an enormously exciting program of trauma research at the UT Health Science Center at Houston."
