Pediatric Critical Care Research

Faculty and fellows in training are active in a wide variety of research endeavors that aim to increase our knowledge in pediatric disease and improve the cutting edge care we provide.

UCLA Mattel Children's Hospital is one of seven participating clinical sites for the Collaborative Pediatric Critical Care Research Network (CPCCRN), a leading source for meaningful clinical trials in the field. Current and completed research supported by CPCCRN includes Therapeutic Hypothermia after Cardiac Arrest (THAPCA), Bleeding and Thrombosis during ECMO (BATE), Critical Pertussis and Pediatric Critical Illness Stress-Induced Immune Suppression (CRISIS), among many others.

In addition to the CPCCRN research, there is ongoing clinical research in the areas of traumatic brain injury, feeding in infants with congenital heart disease and extracorporeal membrane oxygenation.
