Dr. Allen Everett is a professor of pediatrics at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. His areas of clinical expertise include general pediatric cardiology. 

Dr. Everett earned his M.D. from East Tennessee State University. He completed his residency in pediatrics and fellowship in pediatric cardiology at the University of Virginia. Dr. Everett joined the Johns Hopkins faculty in 2003.

He has become the program leader at Johns Hopkins in pediatric biomarker discovery, with a particular focus on brain injury, pulmonary hypertension and effects of medical plastics exposure on congenital heart disease outcomes.  He is the principal investigator (PI) or co-PI on multiple NIH- funded R01 studies. Dr. Everett also serves as the director of the Pediatric Proteome Center.

Dr. Everett is an author of over 140 peer review papers, three book chapters, editor/author of the Illustrated Field Guide to Congenital Heart Disease and Repair, now in its fourth edition, and senior associate editor for the journal, Cardiology in the Young. He is a co-developer of PedCathTM cardiac catheterization software with Scientific Software Solutions which has been translated into five languages, has five US biomarker patents filed and brain injury biomarkers licensed to ImmunArray, Ltd. more

Research Summary

Dr. Everett has become the program leader at Johns Hopkins in pediatric biomarker discovery, with a focus on neonatal brain injury and pulmonary hypertension. This includes both protein and metabolic indicators of diagnosis and outcomes.  

He is the principal investigator (PI) or co-PI on multiple NIH- funded R01 studies.  Active studies as PI include: NICHD R01 HD086058, "Adult Biomarkers in Neonatal Brain Injury and Development", NHLBI R01HL150070, "Role of IGF axis in pulmonary hypertension" and Children's Heart Foundation "Role of cyclohexanone toxicity in mediating congenital cardiac surgical outcomes". Co-investigator on NINDS R01 NS106292 "Biomarkers of Brain Injury in Critically-Ill Children on Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation (ECMO)", NINDS 1 U01 NS114144 "Blood test to aid treatment decisions for perinatal asphyxiation", NICHD 1R01HD100540 "Renal Anhydramnios Fetal Therapy (RAFT) Trial", NHLBI "The Hemodynamic and Metabolic Effects of Advanced Circulatory Support for Resuscitation" and NHLBI "IKDR-PREVAIL".
