Dr. Athir Morad is an assistant professor of anesthesiology and critical care medicine and neurology at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine.

Dr. Morad was a Howard Hughes undergraduate research scholar at Georgetown University and the National Institutes of Health. He earned his M.D. from the University of Virginia and completed residencies in anesthesiology at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and in medicine at Inova Fairfax Hospital. He performed a fellowship in neurocritical care medicine at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. Dr. Morad joined the Johns Hopkins faculty in 2008.
