She established a Traumatic Brain Injury Registry at KCMC in order to understand and improve the clinical care administered for patients. With this registry she found 30% of injury patients were intoxicated at the time of their injury thus spurring a research line in alcohol harm prevention. Completed a Fogarty Center K01 Career Development Award to better describe alcohol use in the Tanzanian culture as well as create an intervention for injury patients who have alcohol use disorders. She is currently funded with a NIAAA R01 project ‘PRACT: A Pragmatic Randomized Adaptive Clinical Trial to Investigate Controlling Alcohol-related Harms in a Low-Income Setting; Emergency Department Brief Interventions in Tanzania. Dr. Staton has also expanded with Fogarty R21"Developing Capacity to Improve Care Transitions for Injury Patients in Tanzania"  is describing the care provided and needs and resources needed for all injury patients with a goal of creating a Transition of Care. Dr. Staton is also the founding PI on an NIH funded multi-national collaborative in order to harness the power of trauma registry data to improve care in low and middle income settings through a GRID “Global Repository for Injury Data”. The GEMINI lab specializes in innovation and advanced analytics at times outside of the injury field; through this lab with Brazilian colleagues and Gates Foundation GEMINI is using advanced analytics and predictive models can improve prevention for neonatal mortality.
