DoD Funding Research Project on Combined Burn/Trauma Outcomes

The American Burn Association and its Multicenter Trials Group are accepting proposals for it. The award funding is $500,000, and the project is expected to launch by fall 2013.

The American Burn Association and its Multicenter Trials Group are accepting proposals for a one-year, Department of Defense-funded demonstration research project addressing combined burn/trauma injury outcomes in adults. The award funding is $500,000, and the project is expected to launch by fall 2013, according to the association’s call for proposals.

The $500,000 includes all direct and indirect institutional costs, and the maximum allowable institutional indirect rate is 15 percent and must be included in the total funding proposal, it says. Proposals must be prospective clinical outcomes studies addressing issues unique to adult combined burn/trauma injury in the acute or reconstructive phase; use of the National Burn Repository for power analysis and study background is strongly recommended. Proposals should be e-mailed to Susan Browning, MPH, associate executive director (browning@ameriburn.org; telephone 312-662-6056 or 312-642-9260) by Oct. 14.

Proposals will be evaluated for scientific merit, importance to the field, feasibility, adherence to submission guidelines, and budget appropriateness. Final proposal funding will be contingent on Department of Defense Human Subjects Review Board Approval of the project. Projects involving only burns or only trauma will not be considered, nor will studies utilizing animal models. ABA is the prime on the award, and the University of California Davis Data Coordinating Center is the subcontractor for statistical, database, and clinical study coordination (contact Mary Beth Lawless, MSN, RN, director of Research Operations, marybeth.lawless@ucdmc.ucdavis.edu, 916-453-2133). The call for proposals says investigators are strongly encouraged to contact the ABA office and the DCC prior to proposal submission.

The association seeks to improve the lives of everyone affected by burn injuries through patient care, education, research, and advocacy. It has more than 3,500 members in the United States, Canada, Europe, Asia, and Latin America who are physicians, nurses, occupational and physical therapists, researchers, social workers, firefighters, and hospitals with burn centers. Its official journal is the Journal of Burn Care & Research, published by Lippincott Williams & Wilkins.
