Goal 2: Reduce Human Disease

Anemia, oxygen delivery, and red blood cell transfusion

In neonatal, pediatric, and adult patients with critical illness, what is the best means to identify: (1) the degree to which anemia contributes to insufficient oxygen (O2) delivery and (2) the likelihood that O2 delivery will be improved by red blood cell (RBC) transfusion?

These questions are most relevant to critically ill populations that exhibit unique physiology, including those with low cardiac output (cardiac... more »

Goal 2: Reduce Human Disease

Making It Real: Affordable Physiologically Relevant In Vitro Environments

We have done the best we can to mimic the human internal environment in vitro for the discovery, testing, and validation of therapeutics, but there is a critical need to do better. The use of more complex cell-based in vitro models is the result of the recognition of how little predictive power there is in current experimental conditions, even with animal models. With an in vitro environment that goes beyond temperature... more »
