Resident Research

Christy Ullrich and Anne Wu

Although there is no formal research requirement, many residents do research, particularly clinical research during their training. Children's Hospital and Boston Medical Center both have federally funded General Clinical Research Centers (called the Experimental Therapeutics Unit at Children's), and outstanding Institutional Centers for Clinical & Translational Research , with biostatisticians, epidemiologists, and other personnel to aid in experimental design. Children's is also part of Harvard Catalyst, a consortium of Harvard hospitals and resources dedicated to clinical research. The Harvard Catalyst provides incredible resources for interconnecting investigators with common interests across the Harvard community and has introduced very powerful tools that facilitate clinical research, such as the Shared Health Research Information Network (SHRINE), an interactive database of patients seen at the Harvard hospitals who meet clinical criteria of interest. Catalyst also provides education and training in clinical research, pilot funding, core facilities and many other services. Faculty members at both Children's and BMC are eager to help residents with research, and many serve as mentors for research projects. The Academic Development Block provides a time to do small projects or conclude larger ones and the new Academy of Investigation and Academy of Clinical Innovation emphasize research. Both the Department of Medicine at Children's Hospital, and the hospital sponsor Research Days where residents and fellows can present their work. In addition, 15-30 current or recently graduated BCRP houseofficers submitted 21 abstracts of research they did during residency to the Pediatric Academic Societies spring meeting in Boston, MA., April 28-May 1, 2012. Though not all resident research is published, much of it is, and often it is of high quality. Some examples of research done during residency and published during the past 2.5 years follow (resident names are in bold):
