This study enrolls people who will be having a neurosurgical procedure on their spine or head. The purpose of this study is to learn how well an image guided surgery system called the 7D Surgical System works in neurosurgical (spine and cranial) procedures. Image guided surgery systems are like a Global Position System (GPS). They use cameras to show surgical tools moving in relation to the patient’s body on computer monitors in the operating room. We want to learn about its accuracy, setup time, and effect on the amount of radiation used during operations. Read More
-Adults ages 18+
-Patients undergoing neurosurgical procedure (Spine or Cranial) whose doctor has decided to use an image guided surgery system during the procedure.
This study enrolls adults with peripheral arterial disease (PAD; blocked arteries in the legs) who are having a lower extremity endovascular intervention (EVI). The purpose of the study is to learn how well a blood test called Plateletcrit find blood clotting cells. We want to see if this test might be useful to learn about outcomes for this surgery.

Adults ages 18+
Have undergone extremity endovascular intervention (EVI) treatment of lower extremity peripheral arterial disease (PAD) or critical limb ischemia
On aspirin at time of the intervention and will receive dual antiplatelet therapy after surgery with aspirin and clopidogrel for at least 30 days.
This study enrolls children younger than 19 who are in the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (ICU) with kidney injury and have tested positive or are being investigated for COVID-19. The purpose of this study is to see the number of children with kidney injury and its association with COVID-19. Read More
People under age 19
Receiving care in the Pediatric ICU between April 1 2020 and June 30 2020
Suspected or tested positive for COVID19
This study enrolls children less than 19 years old who are admitted to the Pediatric ICU and have tested positive for SARS-CoV2. The purpose of this study is to better understand the number of children who are in severe/critical care units due to COVID-19, risk factors, and factors that are associated with improved or worsening outcomes.

Children ages 19 and under
Admitted to the Pediatric ICU or receiving treatment for severe case of COVID-19
Considered to have severe case of COVID-19
We are enrolling adults with a burn wound at Erie County Medical Center for a research study. The purpose of this study is to learn how effective an ultrasound probe is in determining burn depth early after a burn wound. Read More
Adults ages 18+
Admitted to the Roger Seibel Burn Treatment Center at Erie County Medical Center.
We are looking for children with common infections for a study. The purpose of the study is to compare the cells of children with common infections like the flu to to those with a febrile disorder called Kawasaki disease. This will help us see how the immune system responds differently to different illnesses. Read More
Children age 6 months - 6 years old
Children must be in the Emergency Department or inpatient ward of John R. Oishei Children's Hospital with a positive screen for influenza or adenovirus
Children (<18 years old) under consideration for Kawasaki disease
We are looking for people who have had a foot wound related to vascular disease AND healthy volunteers for this study. This study is being conducted to see how well a non-invasive imaging technique allows researchers to see blood inside the human body. The technique combines light and sound to create an image. We would like to see how well this imaging technique can show the veins in the foot in 3D. Read More
