Pediatric pain management; Assessing the impact of epigenetic gene regulation on the development of resistance to chemotherapeutic agents in cancer
Dr. Constance L. Monitto is an assistant professor of anesthesiology and critical care medicine at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. Her clinical work focuses on intraoperative anesthetic management of pediatric patients as well as attending on the pediatric acute pain service.
She serves as associate clinical director of pediatric anesthesiology at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine.
Dr. Monitto received her undergraduate degree in physics from Princeton University and earned her medical degree from Harvard Medical School. She completed a residency in pediatrics at The Children’s Hospital, Boston, and a residency in anesthesia at Massachusetts General Hospital. She also completed a subspecialty residency in pediatric anesthesia at The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP). After remaining on staff at CHOP for two years, Dr. Monitto joined the Johns Hopkins faculty in 1994.
Dr. Monitto's clinical research interest is pediatric pain management and her basic science research involves assessing the impact of epigenetic gene regulation on the development of resistance to chemotherapeutic agents in cancer.
She is a member of the American Academy of Pediatrics, the American Society of Anesthesiologists, the Society for Pediatric Anesthesia and the International Anesthesia Research Society.
