ULATOWSKI NAMED NEW DIRECTOR OF ANESTHESIOLOGY AND CRITICAL CARE MEDICINE AT JOHNS HOPKINS
John Ulatowski, M.D., Ph.D., a world-renowned expert on cerebral blood flow and oxygen delivery in the brain, is the new director of the department of anesthesiology and critical care medicine and the new anesthesiologist in chief of The Johns Hopkins Hospital.
Ulatowski is one of the world’s leading investigators into the regulatory mechanisms of cerebral blood flow and oxygen delivery to the brain. His ongoing research includes the development and application of non-invasive techniques for monitoring brain function in the intensive care unit, fluid management and sedation in patients with brain injury, use of novel oxygen carriers in blood, and new techniques and therapies for stroke.
Ulatowski earned his bachelor of science degree from Niagara University in New York in 1975, his master of science (1977), Ph.D. (1980) and M.D. (1984) degrees from SUNY-Buffalo. And he holds an M.B.A. degree from the Sellinger School of Business (Loyola College of Maryland), earned in 2000.
His internal medicine internship was served at the University of Maryland where he also served a residency in neurology (1985-1988) followed by another at The Johns Hopkins Hospital in anesthesiology. Two fellowships at Hopkins -- neurosurgical anesthesia and neurosurgical critical care (1990-1991) and anesthesiology and critical care medicine research -- led to his appointment to the faculty, where he rose through the ranks to full professor in 2003. He has been interim director of the department since 2003.
The author of more than 50 scientific articles and nine book chapters, and co-editor of one book, he is a member of many prestigious professional societies and editorial boards, including the American Society of Anesthesiologists, the American Academy of Neurology, the Society of Neurosurgical Anesthesia and Critical Care, the American Society of Critical Care Anesthesiologists, and the Association of University Anesthesiologists.
At Johns Hopkins, he served as co-director and interim director of the Neuroscience Critical Care Unit (NCCU), where he made great contributions to the clinical management of neurosurgical anesthesiology and neuroscience critical care medicine. He also served as director of fellowship training for the NCCU, and as associate director of the resident education program, director of inpatient clinical programs, director of the division of general anesthesiology, and vice-chair for clinical affairs for the Department of Anesthesiology and Critical Care Medicine.
