Critical Care Medicine
The Division of Pediatric Critical Care Medicine is committed to providing the highest quality of patient care.
The research laboratory of the Division of Pediatric Critical Care Medicine is located on the third floor of The University of Texas Medical School at Houston and contains state-of-the-art equipment to conduct basic science and translational research. In addition to containing standard laboratory equipment, the laboratory is equipped with a small animal ventilator to measure pulmonary mechanics in mechanically-ventilated mice. The laboratory also contains an ozone inhalation exposure system to assess pulmonary responses to ozone in wild-type and obese mice, and to date, this is the only exposure system of its kind present in the Texas Medical Center. The members of the Division also have complimentary access to bioinformatics, imaging, and qualitative analysis cores within the Department of Pediatrics. If needed, faculty and fellows within the Division can access developmental biology, genetics, imaging, microarray, nucleic acid, proteomics, and quantitative genomics, core laboratories located throughout the University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston.
