Professor Brohi guest edits first Trauma Collection for PLOS

July 6, 2017

The Public Library of Science (PLOS) has commissioned C4TS lead Professor Brohi to edit a special, month-long edition on trauma for their Medicine and Collections series. .  PLOS publishes a suite of peer-reviewed Open Access journals featuring quality research, expert commentary and critical analysis across all areas of science and medicine

From 6 July 2017 for a month, Professor Brohi and Dr Martin Schreiber (Chief of Trauma, Critical Care and Acute Care Surgery at Oregon Health & Science University) are curating and editing articles and commentary from diverse scientists and clinicians focussing on various aspects of traumatic injury. New articles and perspectives will be published each week. 

The PLOS introduction to the series explains its importance:

“Traumatic injury has long been recognized as a neglected disease of extremely high burden. With this Special Issue, PLOS Medicine and guest editors Professor Karim Brohi and Dr Martin Schreiber aim to highlight crucial research in this area.

Studies in the collection focus on a broad range of topics – from epidemiologic and public health research into the risk factors for and causes of traumatic events that may help prevent avoidable injury, to new genetic methods giving insight into the body’s response to trauma.”

In addition, on 26 July, Professor Brohi and other trauma specialists will be engaging with the interested public on-line via a Reddit ‘Ask Me Anything’ session.

New articles and perspectives will be published each week.  Visit PLOS for more information and updates.
