Burn Center staffThe Northwest Regional Burn Model System (NWRBMS), centered within the UW Medicine Department of Surgery at Harborview Medical Center, is one of only 4 burn model centers funded by the National Institute on Disability, Independent Living, and Rehabilitation Research (NIDILRR) for the 2017-2022 grant cycle. Our NIDILRR project award number is 90DPBU0004.

NWRBMS’s primary activities include conducting research studies on high priority topics for people with a burn injury such as employment, rehabilitation to include home therapy, depression, post-burn itching; and providing research-based education and training to professionals and consumers.
