Research Activities and Interests:
My investigative interests, a very significant component of my motivation to pursue a career in academic medicine, are diverse. I am interested in clinical research in general surgery and injury, and both clinical and basic science research in surgical critical care. Future research activities will be focused primarily in emergency general surgery, trauma epidemiology, and surgical critical care. Surgical critical care projects will include prospective clinical research in surgical intensive care unit pharmacology, infectious disease, performance improvement, ventilator associated pneumonia, and acute lung injury. Basic science goals include development of a multisystem trauma acute lung injury animal model.
