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.

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.

I am also interested in the use of clinical decision support systems to help clinicians make better choices at the point of care in order to improve patient outcomes.
