Children's Burns and Trauma Research Group

The Children’s Burns and Trauma Research Group was established in 1999 by burns surgeon, Professor Roy Kimble and is now part of the UQ Child Health Research Centre. Our goal is to prevent children from sustaining traumatic injuries such as burns and to provide the best evidence-base for their treatment.

Our research aims to:

  • identify ways to decrease the number of children with burns and traumatic injuries, and to implement these changes;
  • provide scientific evidence for existing treatments and develop novel wound healing treatments for better care of children suffering from burns; and
  • improve the lives of all children suffering from burns or trauma.
