The Center Investigators

The MGH Burn Research Center investigators are involved in basic science investigations as well as clinical studies and practice. The Center investigators include a mix of scientists from different backgrounds and disciplines who offer crucial expertise and technology and a depth of understanding in addressing the various issues related to injury. More importantly, each investigator has collaborated for years with the other investigators in the Center and enjoys the benefits of the advice and support of other like-minded investigators.

In vitro, in vivo and model systems studies are performed in well-established laboratories and clinical units at the Massachusetts General Hospital, Boston Children's Hospital, and the Stanford Genome Technology Center.

This coupling of human studies with studies of model systems provides the Center with important information not otherwise collectable, while at the same time confirms the clinical relevance of the model systems to recapitulate the hypermetabolic response in patients with burn injury.
