The Center for Engineering in Medicine (CEM) at Massachusetts General Hospital has played a major role in developing tools for investigators studying burns and traumatic injuries, and for using these tools to better understand the mechanistic aspect of underlying biological phenomena.
These include microchips for point-of-care (POC) diagnosis, new tools and techniques for enhanced wound healing results, and mathematical models which can be used to predict the course of adverse incidents and systematically evaluate combination therapies.
Due to our proximity to the Shriners Burns Hospital in Boston, we have the unique capability of advancing our efforts from cell culture and animal studies to local and national clinical trials.
