Welcome to the Division of Research in the Department of Emergency Medicine at Weill Cornell Medicine!

Our division is working to advance and influence emergency care through innovation and research. We are acutely aware of the ever-increasing complexity of emergency medicine, its expanding role in the health of individuals and societies, and the rising expectations of our patients and policymakers.  As a group of emergency medicine researchers, we believe that carefully designed research can push the boundaries of Emergency Medicine and prepare us for the next iteration of emergency medicine. 

Broadly, we are interested in inventing, improving, and implementing clinical interventions that improve outcomes for acutely ill individuals, enhancing the effective use of current and new technologies in and outside of the hospital, and find innovative strategies for positively impact population and public health.

We are expanding our research infrastructure and significantly enhance our academic and scholarly productivity. To achieve our vision, we are looking to partner with individuals and groups who share our enthusiasm for emergency care research. 

With locations throughout New York City, our department offers a research environment and opportunities rarely available in Emergency Medicine. Our presence in Brooklyn, Queens and Upper and Lower Manhattan allows us to conduct cutting-edge research amongst diverse patient populations. We are engaged in ongoing joint research projects with multiple departments in the Medical College, and frequently partner with some of the top hospitals and academic institutions in the area, including the Hospital for Special Surgery, Memorial Sloan Kettering, and Rockefeller University.

We have several faculty members with NIH research funding for domestic and international work. To learn more, please contact
