Critical Care & Resuscitation Research Center

As the first research center in New York dedicated to improving resuscitation care and exploring what happens to the human mind during and after cardiac arrest, the Critical Care and Resuscitation Research Center at NYU Langone Health is innovating the field’s approach to clinical research.

Our breakthrough discoveries have not only elucidated new best practices for CPR, mitigating brain injury and long-term cognitive and psychological effects, we have made great strides toward a new understanding of consciousness—one that bridges medicine and philosophy and stands to profoundly impact our standard of care.
