Program Description
7. RESEARCH


Access to research opportunities is excellent in the Division and Department. The Division of General Surgical Research is a vital aspect of our program, as the 7,782 square foot of laboratory space and the 1,555 square feet of space are held by Pediatric Surgery. The laboratories are well equipped with analytical tools and have technical personnel who are attuned to interactions with surgical resident-investigators. We have made it mandatory that our Pediatric Surgical Resident submit at least one article per year and submit an abstract to either APSA or the Academy of Pediatrics Surgical Section, each year.


The Neonatology basic science laboratory facilities are also available to the Pediatric Surgical Resident, and direct support from NIH and the American Lung Association are available. In addition, the perinatal physiology laboratory has been the center for investigations by the pediatric surgical faculty. Dr. Thomas Tracy has remained NIH-funded without interruption for almost two decades. His laboratory focuses on molecular and cellular aspects of liver injury. Dr. Christopher Muratore joined that laboratory and, until recently, functioned as the principal investigator. The active research of Dr. François Luks has generated much interest and work at the Brown University campus-based animal laboratory where pediatric surgical residents have participated in bench research surgery. A list of recent publications can be found on this web site.
