Welcome to the Emergency Medicine Industry Sponsored Research Program
The Emergency Medicine Industry-Sponsored Research Program is focused on fostering robust partnerships between academic researchers and for-profit industry partners. The Industry-Sponsored Research Program addresses the needs of our industry partners, funds work outside the scope of state and federal agencies, and drives research commercialization. The Industry-Sponsored Research Program has established itself as a reliable and high-enrolling site for emergency medicine clinical trials.
Our program has a strong history in securing industry-sponsored funding, and leverages the rich talent pool in Emergency Medicine and UR Medicine at large. We conduct observational, diagnostic, and therapeutic clinical trials spanning the breadth of emergency and clinical medicine.
Our Emergency Department serves a diverse patient population with a wide variety of pathology. With over 115,000 patient visits per year, this gives us a natural pool of patients with whom we can explore a multitude of questions. In addition to our Emergency Department, Pediatric Emergency Department, and 27-bed observation unit, the Industry-Sponsored Research Program has expansion capability by utilizing our network of urgent care centers and network hospitals. Collaborations with other hospital departments and facilities extend our reach into the robust, over-arching community of clinical research.
