Emergency Medicine Academic Group (EMAG)

The University of Leicester Emergency Medicine Academic Group (EMAG) is one of the largest Emergency Care research groups in the UK, encompassing both adult and paediatric emergency care.

Learn more about the people working in the group.


Research conducted within EMAG crosses the spectrum from bench research to clinical studies to implementation studies. The work divides into four main topic areas:

  • Use of novel devices for illness identification and treatment
  • Injury research
  • Paediatric emergency care
  • Clinical trials in emergency care
