Researchers hope the innovations and treatments they are currently investigating will be able to help patients with a traumatic brain injury in the future. To treat a TBI, researchers are thinking outside the box. The nation’s leading experts and researchers are coming together at the Joyce Massey TBI Summit to discuss the most pressing challenges and how to work together to find innovative solutions.
Ten years ago this summer, what we now know as the North Campus Research Complex was born. On August 22, the U-M community can help celebrate the anniversary of NCRC with special events and tours.
Andrew Rosenberg, MD, chief information officer for Michigan Medicine, mentioned to Health Data Management that the organization currently has 34 ongoing AI and machine leaning projects including the MCIRCC developed automated computer algorithm that utilizes data from a single lead of a non-invasive electrocardiograph signal for analysis and early identification of hemodynamic decline.
MCIRCC Associate Director Scott VanEpps, M.D., Ph.D., FACEP has been named a Taubman Emerging Scholar effective September 1, 2019. The grant is given to support early-career physician-scientists at the assistant professor level.
Data engineer Brandon Cummings has been a part of MCIRCC since he was a student. His involvement began in the lab but has since evolved as his love for analytics has taken shape.
A small, portable breath monitor developed at the University of Michigan can quickly and accurately detect acute respiratory distress syndrome, an often deadly disease that causes fluid to leak into the lungs and demands early diagnosis.
A new Michigan Medicine study authored by MCIRCC members found that implementing a dedicated emergency medicine department-based intensive care unit improved patient survival rates and lowered inpatient intensive care unit (ICU) admissions.
Amid growing federal concerns regarding "foreign influence" on research activity, some federal agencies have issued statements emphasizing the need for increased transparency with respect to international collaborations. Failure to comply could jeopardize the ability of faculty and the university to receive federal support for research.
Congratulations to four students on Dr. Kayvan Najarian's research team who recently won awards from the National Institutes of Health and the University of Michigan Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Department!
Denise Poirier and Sue Wozniak are two important figures at MCIRCC who keep the gears moving. Both are very humble and work diligently behind the scenes. Without them, MCIRCC’s upward trajectory within Michigan Medicine wouldn’t be the same, making them ‘MCIRCC’s A-Team’.
American Heart Association funding will allow Michigan Medicine to establish a leading research and training program, housed at MCIRCC, with a focus on preventing brain damage caused by out-of-hospital cardiac arrest.
Northwestern University, University of Michigan, University of Washington and Vanderbilt University Medical Center leading novel studies in newest American Heart Association Strategically Focused Research Network
After a successful Massey TBI Grand Challenge kick-off event in February, the competition came to a close on May 31 with the Wolverine Den (MCIRCC’s version of Shark Tank). Five teams were awarded funding thanks to the generous gift from the Joyce and Don Massey Family Foundation.
On June 7, MCIRCC welcomed Dr. Marschall Runge and the Michigan Medicine Advisory Group for a morning of tech demonstrations and critical care conversations.
Thanks to the tireless efforts of MCIRCC research teams, the future of combat casualty care is looking bright. Over the past six months alone, MCIRCC has had 13 Department of Defense grants in the works—8 of which have already been submitted.
MCIRCC sits down with U-M Professor of Mechanical Engineering and Director of the Automotive Research Center, Dr. Bogdan Epureanu, to explore how medicine integrates with mechanical engineering.
From recruiting patients to handling institutional review board submissions, the MCIRCC Clinical Research Unit connects investigators to the resources they need to engineer tomorrow’s advancements in critical care.
Two teams at the University of Michigan are harnessing data platforms to accelerate research and solutions in critical care medicine.
Amanda Pennington, MS, CCRP, is the MCIRCC Clinical Research Unit Manager and lesser known Angora goat aficionado. Read on to learn more about both!
Congratulations to MCIRCC member Carleen Penoza on starting in this new role.
