Meeting The Future of Critical Care
CHORI's Center for Critical Care Medicine

At the forefront of national and international multicenter clinical trials, CHORI's Center for Critical Care Medicine (CCCM) is a key player in the arena of collaborative translational and clinical research.

The center is comprised of dedicated clinical researchers from the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit and Pediatric Intensive Care Unit at Children's Hospital Oakland who are committed to improving the clinical outcome of critically ill infants and children.

"Most of the easy things you can study in a single center trial have already been done," says David Durand, MD, CHORI scientist and chair of the Center for Critical Care Medicine. "The future of improving critical care is in multi-center collaborations."

Meeting the future head-on, the Center for Critical Care Medicine plays a pivotal role in spearheading multi-center studies aimed at bringing the newest and most effective therapies into the world of infant and childcare. By determining how information from the laboratory can be best applied in the clinical arena, CHORI's Center for Critical Care Medicine is dedicated to the cutting-edge development of novel therapies and best practices to both treat critically ill infants and children, as well as to protect kids who already have problems from getting worse.

Just some of the national and international collaborations in which the Center participates are with the Pediatric Acute Lung Injury and Sepsis Investigators network, the University of California at San Francisco Medical Center and Cardiovascular Research Institute, the Children's Hospital of Cincinnati, and the Lucille Packard Children's Hospital.
