Emergency Medicine


Researchers in the Department of Emergency Medicine at IU School of Medicine are pre-eminent international leaders in the study and advancement of emergency care. This work is completed through translational research in the department’s Kline Lab and Alves Lab, and studies done in clinical research. Research education is accomplished through a research fellowship and K12 EMCARE Training.

Translational Research

This department focuses on translational research, which is the application of basic science findings to improve health care, through two laboratories: the Kline Lab and Alves Lab.

Clinical Research

Research studies in Emergency Medicine provide focused opportunities for junior investigators, fellows, residents and senior faculty. Working collaboratively, the department has significant experience with various study designs and the ability to process and store biologic samples around the clock.

Research Education

This department trains future researchers through a fellowship and a federally funded training program. The Indiana Emergency Care Research Fellowship focuses on development of clinical trials while the Indiana EMCARE Training Program provides the mentoring environment and expertise for scholars to become independently funded researchers.
