Welcome to the ICU Research Working Group

The MICU Database and Biorepository was established in 2012 and currently is enrolling patients who are admitted to the medical ICU who are age 18 or older with ARDS, ALI, sepsis or other critical illness. Patients are excluded if they are expected to be in the ICU for less than 24 hours, non-English speaking or are receiving comfort care. Blood specimens are collected at enrollment, day three and day five of ICU stay.
