The Coalition for the Advancement of Research and Innovation in Trauma (CARIT) aims to establish innovation in trauma treatment, harness concepts and discoveries from multidisciplinary scientific fields and ensure that these innovations are brought to bear on physical trauma, emergency, and pre-hospital care.
