The Pediatric Emergency Medicine Research  is a non profit organization which directly supports small scale research projects in pediatric emergency medicine. The foundation is typically very involved in these projects and its members directly help by building computer equipment, assisting with data analysis and implementation. Some of these projects have  been proof or disproof of concept. These projects have laid the ground work for future large scale work which we will require funding from much larger organizations. Other projects have failed and the foundation sees no shame in an investigator's conclusion that his or her hypothesis was wrong. Such is science.
