mmarques@uabmc.edu

Professional Interests: I am a faculty member at the University of Alabama at Birmingham since 1998, and I am board-certified in Anatomic and Clinical Pathology, Hematopathology and Blood Banking / Transfusion Medicine. I have been the Medical Director of UAB’s Transfusion Services since 2003, and I have a strong interest in red blood cell transfusions in terms of risks and benefits associated with them. Evidence has accumulated that red blood cells have a narrow therapeutic benefit that has to be balanced against the potential danger caused by the storage lesion. Although not yet well-defined, it is clear that a number of biochemical changes take place in the bag which can help explain increased morbidity and mortality with increasing volumes of cells transfused. Bench and clinical research projects are the only way to determine what happens to the cells after donation, how they impact the patient, and what can be done to overcome the risks of transfusion. For these reasons, I am passionate about teaching others how to best use blood products with the goal of avoiding transfusions whenever possible in order to prevent acute and long-term consequences. My goal for the Blood Management section of Anesthesia & Analgesia is to offer a forum for authors to share their work related to this broadening area of practice.

Professional Interests: My laboratory research is focused on the role of the endothelial glycocalyx on barrier function, mechanotransduction and resuscitation. I am primarily interested in how heparan sulfate proteoglycan sense and transduce mechanical forces into signals that regulate vascular barrier function. The majority of my studies are focused on the pulmonary circulation but we have a growing interest in the mesenteric circulation. Clinically, I am interested in the science of resuscitation practices, the effects of colloids on the glycocalyx and endothelial permeability and improving global hemodynamic management for improved patient outcomes.

The actions of intravenous local anesthetics have been a main area of investigation, and "big data" studies have recently become a focus of interest. Other professional interests include global health work: I regularly teach anesthesiology in various locations in Africa, and work clinically with Doctors Without Borders.

Bio: Dr. Ereth’s career has been marked by innovation and collaboration. He founded and directed a multidisciplinary research group at Mayo Clinic whose primary purpose is to reduce hematostatic perturbations associated with high blood loss surgery. This multi-modal approach has included the development of assays of platelet function, drug level assays, bio-friendly coatings for cardiopulmonary bypass circuits, topical hemostatic agents, and sophisticated laboratory guided transfusion algorithms. Dr. Ereth also conceived, designed, and executed Mayo's Comprehensive Patient Blood Management program. This program reduced transfusion for cardiac surgery by 50% and reduced transfusion related expenditures in excess of twenty-five millions dollars. As an inventor he holds patents for four medical devices. He also founded TransFuse the meeting "The Transformative Fusion of Innovative Patient Blood Management" and wrote and produced TransFuse the iPad and iPhone apps. In his 25 years at Mayo he provided anesthesia and critical care to over 10,000 patients and authored more than one hundred peer reviewed journal articles and abstracts.

Upon retirement from Mayo Clinic he founded Transfuse Solutions, an innovative and progressive Patient Blood Management Consulting and Data firm. Dr. Ereth’s work here focuses on novel-solutions to common problems solving patient safety and over-utilization issues.

Mark also co-founded Cheetah Development, a non-profit based on a novel method of funding, Micro-Venture Capital. Cheetah is finding, funding, and mentoring entrepreneurs in rural Tanzania, creating whole new economies. In his spare time he and his family raise Christmas Trees and Honey Bees.

Bio: Prior to my medical training, I received a bachelor’s degree in Biomedical Engineering from the McCormick School of Engineering and Applied Science of Northwestern University. This was one of the first biomedical engineering programs in the country. The training and the aptitude I have for technical issues has served me well both in my clinical practice but also for my academic pursuits. I have continued to use my training in applied mathematics in my primary research work in clinical pharmacology. This work involves constructing complex physiologically-based pharmacokinetic models of drug distribution and has resulted in more than 45 peer-reviewed scientific publications. One of the most recognized accomplishments of our research group was the development of a physiologically-based recirculatory pharmacokinetic model that is capable of describing drug distribution from the moment of injection based on arterial concentrations of various markers. As one of the Associate Chief Medical Officers of Northwestern Memorial Hospital in Chicago, I am charged with physician administrative oversite of the pharmacy, laboratory, and supply chain.

On a National scale, I have served on the American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA) Committee on Equipment and Facilities since 2004. While serving on this committee I have worked with various sub-committees, one of which was charged with developing a new anesthesia machine pre-use check list and another for setting guidelines for the proper labelling of drug vials/ampules and syringes. I have also served on the Board of Directors of the International Society for Anaesthetic Pharmacology since 2001,the Associate Editorial Board for Anesthesia and Analgesia since 2006, and the Facility Guidelines Institute’s Health Guidelines Revision Committee since 2011 . I have been invited to give about 50 presentations based on my research in clinical pharmacology or hospital administration experience.
