Vice Chair and Division Director, Research

My mission is to help make IU the preeminent research institution in emergency care. I am a results-oriented individual, so my mission and vision has to be measurable as opposed to philosophical. My overall tangible goals for the department include these continuous, sustainable goals within five years:

  • Obtaining SAEM Research Fellowship Approval by 2013, and an Institutional Research Training Grant from SAEM by 2015
  • A research fellow each year
  • At least one faculty member with K23 award every year
  • Three faculty who are Principal Investigators on an R award
  • A woman PI on an R01 in our department
  • Over $1M in direct costs from grants and contracts each year
  • Two oral presentations per year at SAEM or ACEP per year
  • Two first authored publications in Emergency Medicine literature and two first authored publications outside of Emergency Mediclne literature per year
  • An established and renewable community advisory board to address multiple issues in emergency care research 
  • An academic program that allows all residents to conduct a systematic review during their residency
  • An established thrombosis research program including 3 active investigator initiated clinical trials
  • An established large animal model of pulmonary embolism
  • A clear pathway for development of a system and method to deliver direct fibrinolysis to the pulmonary arteries
  • Active pursuit including investor funding of commercialization of two innovative technologies
  • A summer biotechnology immersion program for low income high school students centered in the Rusyniak and Kline labs
