The trauma research program is multidisciplinary and includes pediatric surgery, orthopedics, neurosurgery, plastic surgery, rehabilitation, critical care, and emergency medicine. The trauma medical program members are active participants of the University of Michigan Injury Research Center and the Pediatric Emergency Care Applied Research Network (PECARN), a nationally funded research network with a major focus in pediatric trauma. Projects to reduce risk taking behavior, posttraumatic stress and trauma recidivism are planned for the future. A new collaboration between the trauma program and the University of Michigan's Transportation Research Institute will develop an electronic method of monitoring bicycle helmet use in children.
