We Need Your Help

The Model Systems Knowledge Translation Center (MSKTC) works closely with Burn Injury Model Systems (BIMS) researchers to develop consumer information that is meaningful and useful to individuals with burn injuries. Consumer information materials undergo expert and consumer reviews to ensure they are up-to-date, evidence-based, and consumer-friendly.

Now we need your help!

We are currently in need of images that depict a burn injury for our narrated slideshows, please email them to

Model Systems Researchers Work Published in the New England Journal of Medicine

Drs. Jeffrey Schneider, Robert Sheridan, Shawn Fagan and Frederick Stoddard of the Boston-Harvard Burn Injury Model System (BH-BIMS) co-authored a case report published in the New England Journal of Medicine titled Case 36-2012 — Recovery of a 16-Year-Old Girl from Trauma and Burns after a Car Accident. This article highlights the collaboration among clinicians of various disciplines to address the multidisciplinary needs of a patient who survived massive multisystem injuries including a 70% total body surface area burn, inhalation injury and amputations. With community reintegration as the ultimate goal, Dr. Jeffrey Schneider, Program Director of BH-BIMS, discusses the multistage rehabilitation process needed to recover from such a complex injury.
