The Michigan center for integrative research in critical care will help reduce the barriers that limit innovation. The MCIRCC will bring together researchers to develop new tools for diagnosis, treatment and prevention. It will also leverage an existing pipeline of translational science. To attract research funding, M-CIRCC will solicit proposals from private donors and other sources.
Weil’s inventions are regarded as essential tools in the field of critical care
Max Harry Weil, an American doctor, inventor, and educator, is widely regarded as one of the key founders of critical care medicine. He dedicated his life to saving the lives of patients with acute illnesses. In 1961, he founded the Institute of Critical Care Medicine at the University of Southern California. Since then, Weil has created many technologies and innovations that have greatly improved care for patients with critical illnesses.
The Weil Institute will build on an established pipeline of translational products and scientific research. Many of the Institute’s discoveries have been commercialized, and the institute will focus on the application of these technologies and innovations in key areas of critical care. These include cardiac arrest, COVID-19, and trauma. Weil and his team have worked with thousands of physicians and nurses to advance the field of critical care. Their discoveries and innovations have saved innumerable lives.
Weil Institute at U-M will build on existing pipeline of translational science
The Weil Institute at U-M will develop new therapies and technologies for critically ill patients. It will combine innovation, integration, and entrepreneurship to advance critical care. The institute’s multidisciplinary team includes medical doctors, basic scientists, engineers, commercialization coaches, and industry partners.
The Institute will support a community of nursing research. It will promote the research community in the Eastern region of the United States. The Institute is part of the National Center for Advancing Translational Science (NCATS). This center aims to advance critical care research and develop a pipeline for critical care research.
MCIRCC will reduce barriers to innovation
As the name suggests, the MCIRCC lab is focused on reducing the barriers to critical care innovation. Its goal is to bring together multiple disciplines and products that can save lives. Several MCIRCC projects have already found their way into patient care. The “Utilizing the MCIRCC Machine” graphic illustrates the way the lab is collaborating with other areas to improve patient care.
The MCIRCC has partnered with Fifth Eye, a company that develops technology for healthcare professionals. Together with the company, MCIRCC has developed the Advanced Hemostasis Initiative (AHI). This tool has already been used in emergency departments and has received FDA approval. The MCIRCC is now looking to expand PICTURE to incorporate other data types and more sophisticated clinical decision-making tools.
Grand Challenge competition
The Massey TBI Grand Challenge is a competition that fosters interdisciplinary, milestone-driven research. Inspired by the Massey family’s experience of TBI, the competition provides funding for clinical research, technology innovation, and patient-family support programs.
The competition aims to improve patient care by developing innovative technologies and diagnostics. These technologies could help to prevent or treat organ failure and death caused by Sepsis. Moreover, identifying the best methods for reducing this disease’s severity can help improve the patient experience.
Primer is a center for integrative research in critical care
PRIMER is a center for integrative research in the field of critical care medicine. Its goal is to improve clinical care for critically ill patients through cutting-edge bench-to-bedside translational research. Using evidence-based medicine and best practices, PRIMER aims to improve our understanding of multiple etiologies of critical illness and develop novel treatment options.
Located in Michigan, the center’s mission is to improve the lives of patients who are critically ill or injured. In addition to conducting research, the center will facilitate collaborative research, including collaborative efforts across various institutions. The center will provide proposal development assistance and help with patient engagement and data collection.
