As a trainee on an NIH-Institutional Training Grant (T32) and subsequent PI on an NIH-mentored clinical scientist development award (K08), his initial area of investigation focused on acquired mitochondrial dysfunction in the murine septic heart and his lab identified several novel therapeutic interventions targeting sepsis-induced myocardial depression, resulting in two patent applications. Over the last few years, he has focused his investigation on the effect of different environmental exposures on the developing brain. He has published over 75 original manuscripts, is an associate editor for Survey of Anesthesiology, and regular reviewer for Critical Care Medicine, Anesthesia & Analgesia, the World Journal for Pediatric and Congenital Heart Surgery, and the American Journal of Physiology.
