Background

Dr. Jennifer K. Lee (Lee-Summers) is an Associate Professor in the Johns Hopkins Department of Anesthesiology and Critical Care medicine, Division of Pediatric Anesthesiology.

She works clinically and also conducts brain research. Her research is focused on reducing the risk of permanent neurologic injury in babies and children who experience birth injury or cardiac arrest. Dr. Lee leads translational research on cerebrovascular blood pressure autoregulation, the effects of hypothermia and rewarming, cell death mechanisms, proteostasis, and white matter injury in clinical and laboratory studies. Her research has been funded by the NIH and several foundations, including the American Heart Association, International Anesthesia Research Society, and the Foundation for Anesthesia Education and Research. 

Dr. Lee received her undergraduate degree in environmental, population and organismic biology from the University of Colorado – Boulder and her medical degree from Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. She completed an internship and residency in pediatrics and a residency in anesthesiology at Johns Hopkins. Dr. Lee then performed fellowships in pediatric anesthesiology and pediatric critical care medicine, both at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. She joined the Johns Hopkins faculty in 2010.
