The Ronald O. Perelman Department of Emergency Medicine is leading the transformation of emergency care to promote health and wellness among our diverse populations of patients, their caregivers, and the broader community. Our investigators use cutting-edge research methodologies to transform emergency care across the spectrum of care, from community-based initiatives to critical care interventions to inpatient observational settings. Through the lens of the Emergency Department, we discern the health needs of our patients and the broader population, and devise sustainable solutions to improve the lives of those who face disproportionate health burdens. We provide a voice to historically underrepresented populations and incorporate patient representatives and other key stakeholders into the research process.

The Research Division of the Ronald O. Perelman Department of Emergency Medicine was created in March 2014, and is a rapidly growing example of NYULMC’s stride towards excellence in clinical research. Thanks to the efforts of our research faculty we are now ranked 9th in NIH funding in Emergency Medicine.  Led by Vice Chair Corita Grudzen, MD, MSHS, FACEP, the Division consists of a dedicated research team comprised of volunteer research associates, clinical research coordinators, program managers, a grants manager, and a division administrator. This team supports the Department's core research faculty who successfully compete for Federal, NY State, NY City, and private foundation support.

This is a particularly exciting time for the Research Division of Emergency Medicine. Under the leadership of Dr. Grudzen, the Division is undergoing a series of changes that will support our endeavor to become one of the preeminent research programs in the country. We invite you to learn more about our Department’s research accomplishments.
