​In October 2016, the Weil Institute of Emergency & Critical Care Research at Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU) celebrated its grand opening.

The VCU partnership with the Weil Institute brings with it strong critical care and emergency departments, an established basic research program, and access to the resources and tools needed for success. Projects on the horizon include trials related to treating cardiac rhythm disturbances, collaborations with the bioengineering department, and the potential development of a new drug for cardiac arrest.
