Bio-Summary

Dr. Coopersmith is an eminent academic surgeon in the area of surgical critical care. As associate director of the Emory Critical Care Center, he is integral to a service that aims to deliver the highest quality, value, and access to critical care for patients in the southeastern USA, and leads the nation in designing, testing, and implementing innovations in critical care. Partnering throughout Emory's Woodruff Health Sciences Center, the center offers access to state-of-the-art care and experimental treatments. The Emory Critical Care Center also has a comprehensive training mission that includes educating fourth-year Emory medical students; interns and residents from internal medicine, general surgery, anesthesiology, emergency medicine, neurology, and neurosurgery; and advanced fellows who are studying to become intensive care physicians.

Dr. Coopersmith has established himself as one of the top investigators of sepsis and shock in the country. In 2013, he was elected to the American Society for Clinical Investigation, one of the nation's oldest and most respected medical honor societies and one that requires its members to have an outstanding record of scholarly achievement in biomedical research. He is also president-elect of the Society of Critical Care Medicine, the world's largest multi-professional ICU organization. His current research activity includes an NIH T32 training grant and two NIH R01 grants, one of which is a collaborative study of the interplay between cancer and sepsis with Emory transplant immunologist Dr. Mandy Ford.
