Leading Clinical research Pre-clinical models Biomedical Engineering
Based in Australia’s leading cardiothoracic hospital, The Prince Charles Hospital, the Critical Care Research Group (CCRG) consists of three streams – Clinical Research, Translational Science, and Engineering. Whilst there are multiple sectors of CCRG, they all have one primary focus – improving outcomes for the hospital patient.
Our research is clinically-focused and aims to address gaps in current practice to aid clinical decision-making and patient management, resulting in improved levels of care for critically ill patients, reduced healthcare costs and improved patient outcomes.
CCRG is an incredibly unique research environment with the collaboration of clinicians, nurses, scientists and engineers in one research group. There are currently a range of diverse projects running, from improving outcomes for heart transplant patients, to better understanding patients with acute respiratory failure, and also optimising mechanical support of patients for better long-term outcomes.
