Jeremy Kahn, MD, MS Appointed Vice Chair for Research

Professor Jeremy Kahn, MD, MS was appointed Vice Chair for Research for the Department of Critical Care Medicine, effective February 1, 2021. He succeeds John Kellum, MD, who held the role for the past 12 years.

“Jeremy has done a fantastic job as Vice Chair for Academic Affairs and will bring his passion, expertise, and strategic insight to the leadership of our research efforts and team,” said Derek Angus, MD, MPH, Chair of the Department.

Dr. Kahn’s academic work is focused on ICU organization and management, and the translation of evidence into clinical practice. His research has been continuously supported by NIH funding for the last 15 years. He is the first CCM faculty member to receive a prestigious R35 Outstanding Investigator Award from the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute.

In this new role, Dr. Kahn will have oversight for the Department’s research mission that includes senior, mid-career and junior investigators and a diverse portfolio of grants from the National Institutes of Health and public and private funders. In 2020, CCM investigators published more than 400 peer-reviewed manuscripts.

Additionally, Dr. Kahn is principal investigator for one of the Department’s two T32 training grants, “Multidisciplinary Training in Critical Care Outcomes Research”. This program provides research training, career development, and mentorship to four fellows each year. The goal of the program is to train independent investigators in the science of acute organ dysfunction in the setting of critical illness, with a particular focus on sepsis and the acute respiratory distress syndrome.

Dr. Kahn is also the Director for the CRISMA Program on Critical Care Health Policy and Management and of the Health Services Research Data Center.
