Dr. Olutosin Akanni (right) is currently pursuing residency training from the Department of Anesthesiology at Columbia University Medical Center and NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital. He earned his Bachelor of Arts in Biochemistry at Columbia University - Columbia College while performing basic science research under the supervision of Dr. Ron Prywes. Dr. Akanni then continued his education at Columbia University Vagelos College of Physicians and Surgeons where he performed clinical research under the mentorship of Dr. Hiroo Takayama (left). Studying in Dr. Takayama’s lab introduced him to the fascinatingly complex and dynamic field of mechanical circulatory management for acute and chronic heart failure. Dr. Akanni hopes to continue to become further involved in collaborative clinical studies aimed at improving perioperative outcomes in advanced heart failure patients..
