PEM CRC Steering Committee Roster

 


Resources
 

Data Center: The PEM CRC has developed a centralized data center based at Baylor College of Medicine/Texas Children’s Hospital, which provides data collection support services such as front-end logic checks for electronic data sheets, high speed automated data sheet scanning services, and database creation, encryption, and processing.

Mentoring: The 12 members of the PEM CRC steering committee are available to critique and review proposals. Furthermore, Drs. Denise Dowd and Joe Zorc are able to serve in a mentorship capacity to young investigators with an active research project being implemented through the PEM CRC. As an additional resource, the PEM-CRC offers an annual scholarship to interested junior investigators to attend a national grant-writing conference. (hyperlink)

Survey Competition: The PEM CRC coordinates electronic surveys that are administered to SOEM constituents.  Researchers interested in using the listserv for research purposes must submit an application and enter a quarterly survey competition, which is administered by Dr. Rakesh Mistry.
See PEM Research

Other Activities: The PEM CRC actively seeks partnerships with other organizations, such as ACEP, SAEM, as well as other AAP sections. Dr. Marc Auerbach serves as our liaison to ACEP, Dr. Charles Macias our liaison to PERN and Dr. Prashant Mahajan our liaison to PECARN.
