Are you an investigator interested in conducting multicenter, clinical research in the care of trauma patients?
Are you a leader in a professional organization interested in supporting trauma research?
The Coalition for National Trauma Research was established in 2014 by the American Association for the Surgery of Trauma, the American College of Surgeons Committee on Trauma, the Eastern Association for the Surgery of Trauma, the Western Trauma Association, and the National Trauma Institute. The American Burn Association, Orthopedic Trauma Association, Society of Trauma Nurses, Military Health System Strategic Partnership of the ACS, and the American Trauma Society’s Trauma Survivors Network have all recently joined as well.
The Mission of CNTR is to enhance trauma research in the U.S. by:
- Advocating for sustainable research funding commensurate with the burden of disease
- Coordinating research efforts across professional organizations that span the continuum of injury care
- Strengthening the infrastructure for multicenter investigation.
