Dr. Angus is Professor and Chair of the Department of Critical Care Medicine and Director of CRISMA (Clinical Research, Investigation, and Systems Modeling of Acute Illnesses) Center at the University of Pittsburgh.
Dr. Chou's research focuses on the use of human molecular biomarkers to probe mechanisms and predict outcomes in acute brain injury conditions such as subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) and hypoxic ischemic brain injury from cardiac arrest.
Exploring the intersection of advanced quantitative methods and bedside care with the ultimate vision of leveraging mathematical, computational and engineering expertise to deliver improved personalized care to the critically ill.
Dr. Dezfulian is interested in ways of reducing cerebral and cardiac injury resulting from cardiac arrest.
Dr. Girard's research interests include cognitive impairment after critical illness, delirium in the ICU, sedation, and liberation from mechanical ventilation.
Dr. Gomez's research interest is in the mechanisms by which sepsis causes multiple organ dysfunction, so as to understand the impact of these modifications on cell and organ function, and cell survival.
The underlying theme of Dr. Hotchkiss' work is the application of contemporary computational and bioengineering techniques to complex biological and clinical systems.
Dr. Huang’s research focuses on the resuscitative and biomarker aspects of sepsis, as well as understanding how organizational culture impacts patient outcomes.
Dr. Murat Kaynar’s research continues to focus on the primary themes of sepsis, acute lung injury and ventilator-induced lung injury (VILI).
