Pediatric Emergency Medicine Research


The research program of the Division of Emergency Medicine in the Department of Pediatrics at Baylor College of Medicine works to improve the health of children through excellence in research conducted by nationally and internationally recognized experts in pediatric emergency medicine. We accomplish this mission through multidisciplinary collaboration with colleagues within and outside of BCM and across the continuum of care: prehospital settings; emergency department; inpatient service; and community. Faculty are actively engaged in and lead studies through the Pediatric Emergency Care Applied Research Network (PECARN), the Pediatric Emergency Medicine Collaborative Research Committee (PEM CRC) of the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), and Pediatric Emergency Medicine Research (PERN), an international collaborative research network. In addition, our faculty are collaborating with the Pediatric Acute Lung Injury and Sepsis Investigators Global Health (PALISI-GH) Network and the World Health Organization’s Pneumonia Research Partnership to Address WHO Recommendations (PREPARE).

We accomplish this through multidisciplinary collaboration with colleagues within and outside the medical center, across the continuum of care, provided: prehospital setting, emergency department, inpatient service, and community.
