The UC Davis Regional Burn Center and the American Burn Association are launching The Burns Outcomes Research Infrastructure Project, a nationwide research effort aimed at developing new procedures and best practices for the treatment of burn injuries. The multicenter clinical research effort, which includes the University of Utah, the U.S. Army Institute of Surgical Research at Brooke Army Hospital and others, will establish a patient-data repository center from clinical trials to help determine standards of care for burn treatment. The project is funded in part by a $2.4 million federal appropriation, supported by Rep. Doris Matsui, D-Calif.
