He has served as a co-investigator on a grant from the National Institutes of Health as well as the principal investigator on several additional grants. His primary research interests include cardiovascular disease and pain management.
Dr. Madsen graduated from the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, trained in emergency medicine at Ohio State University, and completed a fellowship in research methodology with Annals of Emergency Medicine. In addition to his work as research director, he serves as the associate director of the emergency medicine research fellowship, directs the medical student elective in emergency medicine research (SURG 7640), and teaches an undergraduate course in clinical research applications (H EDU 5900).
