The critical care professionals dedicated to research are vitally important to the present and future of the specialty.

Researchers -- be their focus on basic, applied or translational research -- are at the forefront of advancing knowledge that can be leveraged to treat disease, to improve quality of care, and to enhance patient experiences and outcomes. Integration of research topics and techniques into the educational programs, publications and communications of the Society remains a priority.

The Research Section supports research development among Society members and promotes communication about opportunities and networks.
