Dr. Ulatowski started his training at Niagara University where he received a B.S. in Biology in 1975. He continued his education at the State University of New York, where he received his MS in Natural Sciences in 1977, a Ph.D in Physiology in 1980, and his MD in 1984 from State University of New York 1984. He completed his Internship in Internal Medicine and a Residency in Neurology at the University of Maryland Hospital between 1984-1988, and a second residency in Anesthesiology at The Johns Hopkins Hospital in 1990. He completed Fellowships in Neurosurgical Anesthesia and Neuroscience Critical Care Medicine, and was an ACCM Research Fellow between 1988 – 1992.
Dr. Ulatowski has served as the Associate Director of the Resident Education Program for Anesthesiology/Critical Care, was Co-Director of the Neuroscience Critical Care Unit, and is currently the Director and Anesthesiologist-in-Chief for the Department of Anesthesiology/Critical Care Medicine at The Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions. His major research interest is in regulatory mechanisms of cerebral blood flow and oxygen delivery to brain under normal and pathological states, and in the development of techniques to measure cerebral blood flow and state of cerebral oxygenation of brain tissue non-invasively using magnetic resonance imaging and spectroscopy. Clinical research interests include 1) development and application of non-invasive techniques of monitoring brain function in the ICU (Doppler, EEG, cardiac variability, MR spectroscopy), 2) fluid management in the brain injured patient (mannitol, hypertonic saline), 3) sedation of the brain injured patient, and new techniques and therapies for stroke (thrombolysis, angioplasty, pharmacological neuroprotective agents).
