Critical Care Medicine
The Division of Pediatric Critical Care Medicine is committed to providing the highest quality of patient care.
Excellence in basic science, translational, and clinical research is one component of the tripartite mission of the Division of Pediatric Critical Care Medicine. Our faculty actively directs and participates in each of these three areas of research, which we hope will lead to seminal findings that will have a positive impact on the treatment of critically ill children and adolescents. In addition, all of our pediatric critical care medicine fellows are required to complete a research project under the close supervision of a mentor. Current areas of research within the Division include acute lung injury, airway and pulmonary vascular smooth muscle biology, asthma, and cardiopulmonary resuscitation.
To facilitate research within the Division, the Division Chief appoints an Associate Director of Research, whose function is to (1) design and implement a divisional research curriculum, (2) serve as a research mentor for divisional fellows and/or assist the Division Chief and Fellowship Program Director with the oversight of all research projects of the fellows, and (3) work with and assist divisional faculty interested in research. As part of the Division’s research curriculum, all faculty and fellows are required to attend and participate in the divisional Research Conference http://ped1.med.uth.tmc.edu/divisions/critical-care/education/conferences/division/research-conference.html, which is held on the fourth Thursday of each month. The faculty and fellows also attend other pertinent extra-divisional research conferences and seminars. Finally, the divisional faculty collaborates on research projects with National Institutes of Health-funded investigators within The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston and Texas Medical Center.
If you have any questions concerning the ongoing research within our Division, please feel free to contact us.
