Research Section

The Research Section promotes and supports a multiprofessional model of basic, translational and clinical research to ensure optimal outcomes for all critically ill patients. Its mission is to support research development of Society members, and promote communication among Society members regarding research, research opportunities and networks. Further, the Section seeks opportunities to stimulate basic, translational and clinical research activities throughout the Society membership and in the broader critical care community. It also works with SCCM leadership to position SCCM as a nationally recognized leader in critical care research.
