Mission Statement
The Pediatric Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation (ECMO) Research Network (PediECMO) is an international collaborative of health professionals dedicated to facilitating and performing basic science research, clinical research, and quality improvement research aimed at optimizing outcomes for critically ill children on ECMO. 

Strategic Goal
To create a forum and virtual/physical meeting touchpoints that:

                 b) foster a community forum and relationships for education and mentorship
                 c) develop philanthropy to fund and study important ECMO research questions for children with cardiac and/or respiratory                               failure.
