Our goal is to continue developing a group of physician-scientists who conduct bedside clinical research that spans the entire continuum of patient care. Using our innovative approach, we intend to decrease the rate of complications and improve outcomes in critically ill patients.
Our studies range from Investigator-initiated projects to industry sponsored clinical trials and federally funded grants.
Our research focus areas include: sepsis, acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS), postoperative transplant care, dysregulated immune response (cytokine storm) in critical illnesses, infectious disease and life support (mechanical ventilation, extra-corporeal membrane oxygenation [ECMO]) research.
As a founding member of the Texas Medical Center Sepsis Collaborative since 2012, Houston Methodist joined forces with 11 Institutions in the largest medical center complex in the world to raise sepsis awareness through symposiums, conferences, media events, community outreach, newspaper, lectures, and poster competitions.
In 2016, Houston Methodist, in collaboration with the Texas Gulf Coast Sepsis Network, was awarded a $14.4 million grant from the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services Health Care Innovation Awards program to further expand the Sepsis Early Recognition and Response Initiative that identifies and treats sepsis before it progresses.
