The National Foundation of Emergency Medicine (NFEM) supports early career academic emergency medicine physicians (EMPs) who contribute to translational medicine through research. This year, four emergency medicine scholars in our Scholar-Mentor Program submitted five abstracts on research they will be presenting at the Society of Academic Emergency Medicine (SAEM) 2021 virtual meeting, #SAEM21. SAEM holds annual meetings which allow the opportunity for EMPs to showcase their contributions to translational medicine. NFEM Scholars receive funding for their research as part of the Scholar-Mentor program, and during the COVID-19 pandemic, scholars had the opportunity to apply for COVID-19-related research grants. Four of the five abstracts presented at #SAEM21 will showcase COVID-19-specific research. Below is a list of our scholars’ planned presentations.
