1. Purpose of Education
We, the department of acute critical care and disaster medicine, investigate following wide range of fields, such as the search for mechanisms of biological response to severe stresses, the development of strategy for multiple organ dysfunction from the view of intensive care medicine, basic and clinical research about trauma, trauma preventive medicine and disaster medicine. Our targets of research are practical and cutting edge to work not only as a medical scientist but as a researcher for government projects.
2. Research Subjects
Basic research of the mechanism of multiple organ dysfunction following hemorrhagic/septic shock
Development of strategy for multiple organ dysfunction
Basic and clinical research of multiple trauma
Trauma epidemiology and trauma preventive medicine
Clinical research of cerebrovascular disease on acute phase
