Patients with cirrhosis are at increased-risk for infections and these frequently prolong and complicate their hospital course. We are planning to study methods for reducing this risk. We would like to define and characterize a historical comparison group against which to reference changes we observe from in-hospital interventions.

The student role would potentially include drafting a research proposal and submitting for IRB approval, defining a patient cohort of interest and performing retrospective review of hospital records to identify relevant subjects and outcomes. These results could likely be presented independently in abstract form at a conference and would be incorporated into analysis of anticipated interventional studies. Participation in these would also be possible, depending on student/research timeline.

PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
