Pediatric ER research work renewed

A Health Resources and Services Administration $2.67 million dollar, three-year grant renews UC Davis' participation in the Pediatric Emergency Care Applied Research Network (PECARN), the first federally funded pediatric emergency medicine research network in the United States. PECARN conducts high-priority, multi-institutional research into the prevention and management of acute illnesses and injuries in children and youth. UC Davis Medical Center has been part of PECARN since its inception in 2001. Nathan Kuppermann, chair of the UC Davis emergency department, is the principal investigator of the network's Academic Centers Research Node and is chair of the PECARN Steering Committee.
