The Center for Resuscitation Science

The Center for Resuscitation Science (CRS), established in 2006 and currently led by Emergency Department faculty Benjamin Abella, is focused on the science of acute resuscitation from cardiac arrest. The work of the center includes benchtop laboratory investigations, large animal experimental science, clinical studies, and a portfolio of educational activities.

The CRS represents a unique intramural collaborative environment, with faculty involvement from the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP), the School of Nursing, and the Penn School of Veterinary Medicine. Some examples of CRS activities include:
