Resident Research

Christy Ullrich and Anne Wu when they were residents, working on their study, published in JAMA, showing  that a low reticulocyte hemoglobin is an early indicator of iron deficiency.

Although there is no formal research requirement, many residents do research, particularly clinical research during their training.  Some also do ‘omics research or other research where assays are sent off and the resulting data is analyzed. Children’s Hospital and Boston Medical Center both have federally funded General Clinical Research Centers and Children’s has an outstanding Institutional Center for Clinical & Translational Research (ICCTR), with biostatisticians, epidemiologists, and other personnel to aid in experimental design and regulatory approval of a project.

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.

Residents present at national conferences every year

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 Academy of Basic and Translational Investigation,  Academy of Clinical Investigation, and Academy of Clinical Innovation emphasize research.

Both the Department of Pediatrics 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 submit abstracts of their work to the Pediatric Academic Societies (PAS) spring meeting each year.

Though not all resident research is published, much of it is, and often it is of high quality. To illustrate, BCRP residents published 161 papers during the 1.6 years from January 2020 through August 2021  (resident names are in bold):
