Research is Critical in Care

Restoring Life Through Integration

The Michigan Center for Integrative Research in Critical Care (M-CIRCC) is one of the world’s first comprehensive research enterprises devoted to improving the care of the victim of critical illness and injury. M-CIRCC is pursuing this unique mission by creating an innovative multidisciplinary research infrastructure designed to catalyze the translation of scientific discovery to the multiple interrelated disease platforms of critical illness and injury involving all age groups and patient populations. M-CIRCC will serve as the scientific home and platform for basic scientists, engineers, clinical investigators, inventors and entrepreneurs interested in the care of patients with life-threatening acute illness and injury.
