Critical Care Research


We are interested in the pathophysiology of Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS), ranging from the inflammatory response at a cellular level to larger organ contributions with pulmonary-renal interactions.


Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) is a type of mechanical life support. Our research evaluates biomarker changes associated with clinical interventions for patients on ECMO.

About ECMO Research

ICU Recovery

After an ICU admission, patients often struggle with cognitive, physical, and mental impairment--a group of symptoms known as Post-Intensive Care Syndrome (PICS).

More about ICU Recovery


Our research investigates physiologic mechanisms of the respiratory system. Our goal is to assess respiratory mechanics and function to assist in the diagnosis and understanding of pulmonary-related diseases.
