Dr. Nauder Faraday is a professor of anesthesiology and critical care medicine at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. His areas of clinical expertise include cardiac anesthesia and surgical intensive care. He serves as director of Perioperative Genomic and Translational Research and director of the Perioperative Hemostasis and Thrombosis Research Laboratory for the Department of Anesthesiology and Critical Care Medicine.
After receiving his undergraduate degree from Columbia University, Dr. Faraday earned his medical degree from Mount Sinai School of Medicine. He completed an internship at the Hospital of St. Raphael at Yale University and a residency in anesthesiology at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. He performed fellowships in critical care medicine and cardiovascular anesthesiology, as well as two research fellowships, at Johns Hopkins. Recently, he earned a Master of Public Health degree from the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. Dr. Faraday joined the Johns Hopkins faculty in 1993.
Since 2008, Dr. Faraday has worked to build a research program in perioperative genetic and molecular medicine. His goal is to identify molecular determinants of complications of surgery.
He serves as an ad hoc reviewer for a number of journals and is a member of the Society of Cardiovascular Anesthesiologists, the Society of Critical Care Medicine and the International Anesthesia Research Society, among others. He was recognized as a Marquis Who’s Who in Medicine and Healthcare in 2011.

Research & Publications
Dr. Faraday’s research focuses on perioperative genetic and molecular medicine. His goal is to identify molecular determinants (genetic and protein) of outcome in surgical patients and to use these molecules to personalize care (by stratifying risk and developing novel therapeutics, for example) in the perioperative period.
His specific focus is on thrombotic, bleeding and infectious complications of surgery, which can result in serious complications after surgery.
Additionally, he and his team are working on research to help them construct predictive tools that will allow targeted use of novel antimicrobial and antithrombotic strategies, which maximize benefit and minimize risk to individual patients.
