Research Articles


Research continues to be an important part of NOTS.

According to the National Institutes of Health, research is defined as a “systematic investigation, including research development, testing and evaluation, designed to develop or contribute to generalizable knowledge.”

Using a multidisciplinary approach, we focus on trauma-related research. Our goal is to work collaboratively to improve trauma patient outcomes and to decrease mortality and morbidity.
