Hernando Gomez, MD , MPH, is an Assistant Professor in Critical Care Medicine at the University of Pittsburgh. He completed his MD at the Universidad Nacional de Colombia in Bogota, Colombia, a medical internship at the University of Miami, Jackson Hospital, and an anesthesia residency at the Universidad Nacional de Colombia. Dr. Gomez came to Pittsburgh for his Critical Care Medicine fellowship, after which he was appointed to a faculty position. His research focus will be in translational research on the role of mitophagy and mitochondrial dysfunction during sepsis-induced microcirculatory failure.

Keith Marill, MD, completed his MD at the University of Rochester, an Internal Medicine Residency at the University of New Mexico, and an Emergency Medicine Residency at Texas Tech University. He has completed graduate coursework at the Harvard School of Public Health. He has served clinically at the Massachusetts General Hospital since 2002. Dr. Marill’s academic focus has been on the clinical treatment of cardiac ventricular dysrhythmias. He has recently published several  manuscripts about the pharmacological approach to treating ventricular dysrhythmias in emergency settings.

Jonathan Elmer, MD, is Assistant Professor in the Department of Critical Care Medicine at the University of Pittsburgh. Dr. Elmer's research interest is post-cardiac arrest neurological injury. He is using multimodal neurological monitoring to identify clinically relevant neurophysiological mediators of secondary brain injury in this population, and is testing the efficacy of specific neurocritical care interventions to mitigate ongoing brain injury.

Nahmah Kim-Campbell, MD, is an Instructor in the Division of Pediatric Critical Care Medicine at the University of Pittsburgh. Dr. Kim-Campbell is interested in the production of cell-free hemoglobin via hemolysis from extracorporeal therapies and its relationship to organ injury. She is carrying out translational work using a bench to bedside approach to study the effect of free hemoglobin using both a prospective clinical study and a pre-clinical animal model.

Oladipupo Olafiranye, MD is an Assistant Professor of Medicine in the Heart Vascular Institute at the University of Pittsburgh where he works clinically as an interventional cardiologist. Dr. Olafirinye is interested in the application of remote ischemic conditioning to treatment of acute coronary syndromes. He is conducting basic and clinical research on the mechanisms whereby remote ischemic conditioning mitigates reperfusion injury.

David Salcido, PhD, is an Instructor in the Depatment of Emergency Medicine at the University of Pittsburgh. Dr. Salcdo conducts translational research related to resuscitation. He has particular focus on complex signal analysis and is developing a large computational platform to analyze physiological signals acquired at high frequency over long durations.
