The Center for Translational Injury Research (CeTIR) is behind much of this research, with the goal of leading in the research and development of next-generation medical technologies related to hemostasis, resuscitation, and computerized decision support for trauma patients. The need for translating trauma research from the bench to the bed side is as great a priority and CeTIR is in a unique position to link basic science research to clinical practice.
