Outstanding research is the hallmark of a great medical community. In the Critical Care Division of Pediatrics we are dedicated to providing an environment in which the collective and individual efforts of faculty, fellows, and staff can thrive. Our success hinges on advocating for research, creating innovative partnerships, and expecting excellence.

  • Working to promote interactions and partnerships across departments, colleges, industries, and other universities.
  • Assisting investigators in cultivating research through a network of support staff.
