Lovell FHCC Research has planned the first annual Poster Day for Jan. 24, 2013.  This is a joint venture between Research and Development, Academic Affairs and Rosalind Franklin University, in which we will showcase the research being conducted at the FHCC and at Rosalind Franklin University through Investigator Posters.

Researchers at FHCC are involved in wide variety of projects including, but not limited to, investigator-initiated trials, clinical trials and bench research. Chief of Medicine Dr. Rohit Arora and Dr. Raul Gazmuri are working on several projects focusing on prevention of major adverse cardiovascular events. Dr Raul Gazmuri also does research in cardiopulmonary resuscitation. Dr. Ashok Fulambarker and his colleagues in pulmonary medicine are researching chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) whereas Dr. Rashid Nadeem is studying obstructive sleep apnea. In recent months, we have intensified our effort to collaborate with RFUMS (Rosalind Franklin University of Medicine and Science) and the Investigator team of Dr. Shim (FHCC) and Dr. Grace Stuzmun has begun working on submitting a grant proposal to study “Traumatic Brain Injury and Neurodegenerative disease.”

There are also several new and exciting changes to the Lovell FHCC research programs. The FHCC shares its research program with Hines (Edward Hines Jr. Veterans Affairs Hospital). For several years, most of the administration was at Hines. In the last couple of years, the FHCC has renewed its commitment to research by creating an administrative infrastructure locally. The FHCC has appointed a Research Compliance Officer, an administrative officer and an Assistant Chief Medical Executive (ACME) for Research and Development. The R&D department is creating several new partnerships to expand collaborative research. These partnerships include Rosalind Franklin University, the Department of Defense and local area hospitals and institutes.

Advances in medicine through research not only benefit patients but their families and the entire nation. Fostering fundamental creative discoveries, innovative research strategies, and their applications is the basis for ultimately protecting and improving health. Research benefits a medical center such as the FHCC, which is unique and is on its way to becoming an even better medical health care provider for our nation’s heroes and their families.
