Biography

Dr. Ernest Graham is an associate professor in the Johns Hopkins Medicine Department of Gynecology and Obstetrics. His areas of clinical expertise include high-risk pregnancy conditions and fetal heart rate monitoring. Dr. Graham serves as the director of the Maternal-Fetal Medicine Fellowship Program at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine.

Dr. Graham received his undergraduate degree in biochemistry from the University of Alabama. He earned his M.D. from the University of Mississippi School of Medicine and completed his residency in obstetrics and gynecology at the University of Florida College of Medicine. Dr. Graham performed a fellowship in maternal-fetal medicine at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania. Dr. Graham joined the Johns Hopkins faculty in 1999.

Dr. Graham is a fellow of the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists and a member of the Society for Maternal-Fetal Medicine and the Society for Gynecologic Investigation. He has served as a reviewer for several medical journals, including the American Journal of Infection Control, American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology, American Journal of Perinatology and the British Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology. He has published numerous peer-reviewed research articles on perinatal brain injury and perinatal disease.

    Research Summary

    Dr. Graham has a long history of research in the area of perinatal brain injury that involves both basic science and clinical work. Past research includes neuronal cell membrane Na+,K+-ATPase damage following hypoxia-ischemia in animal models, risk factors for seizures and periventricular white matter in the neonate, and the relationship between severe intrapartum metabolic acidosis, electronic fetal heart rate monitoring and neurologic morbidity and mortality. Current research involves using biomarkers measured in cord blood at birth and in neonatal serum during the 1st week of life to identify neonates at risk for neurodevelopmental abnormalities and to follow the efficacy of new therapies such as whole body cooling for hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy.
