Our pursuit of groundbreaking research in surgery complements our department’s commitment to excellence in clinical care and education.
Our passion for providing extraordinary patient care has generated a trans-disciplinary research and innovation enterprise committed to academic excellence, impactful research, and trans-formative innovation.
Research and innovation is managed by the Research and Innovation Committee, which is comprised of a diverse membership and meets monthly. The Research and Innovation Committee’s primary goals are to provide support for our investigators, innovators, and trainees and pursue integration of research across disciplines, sites, and researcher types to promote new collaborative thinking.

Surgery research coordinators provide administrative, regulatory, and grant management support to clinicians conducting surgery-related research in the areas of basic and translational science, clinical trials, and health outcomes. Research coordinators work closely with the CTRC’s Clinical Research Office (CRO) to secure IRB approval, negotiate budgets and contracts, the Office of Research Advancement (ORA) to facilitate grant preparation and with Sponsored Projects Services (SPS) for grant submission.
There are four surgery research groups: Pediatrics, Vascular, BGH General Surgery, ECMC General Surgery, Transplant. Each has designated research coordinators:
