Research


The University of Colorado Burn Center is a nationally recognized for research it conducts in clinical, basic science, and translational investigations. Our innovative research projects have impacted patient care both locally and nationally, thereby improving the quality of life of our patients.

Clinical Research

The aim of our clinical research is to find real world solutions for complex problems faced everyday by our patients. Besides our own projects, we are an active study site enrolling patients in the multi-national RE-ENERGIZE glutamine trial for burn patients. We have presented our research findings at local and national meetings, along with numerous publications.

Some notable projects include:
Safety of intraoperative feeding of burn patients during surgery
Remote treatment for frostbite using altepase (TPA) to salvage limbs/digits
Screening for ASD/PTSD in burn survivors
