Respiratory, Critical Care and Anaesthesia
The multi-disciplinary research teams within the Respiratory, Critical Care and Anaesthesia (RCCA) Section at the UCL, Institute of Child Health investigate the causes, consequences and treatments of cardio-respiratory diseases in childhood. This work is of immense clinical importance because cardiorespiratory disease - the major cause of death in Western society - has its origins in childhood, and respiratory illness is the most common cause of paediatric admission to hospital in the UK.
The RCCA section includes several groups with complementary
research interests in clinical and basic science.
