Dr. Neumar is an Associate Professor of Emergency Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine where he is also a faculty member of the Mahoney Institute of Neuroscience and the Neuroscience Graduate Group. In addition, Dr. Neumar serves on the steering committee of the Penn Center for Brain Injury and Repair.
Dr. Neumar obtained his MD in 1990 from the University of Pittsburgh, where he also completed residency training in Emergency Medicine. His formal research training includes a Sarnoff Fellowship with Charles G. Brown at Ohio State University, a Critical Care Research Fellowship under the direction of Peter Safar at the University of Pittsburgh Resuscitation Research Center, and an Emergency Medicine Research Fellowship under the direction of Blaine White at Wayne State University where he obtained his Ph.D. in Physiology.
Joining the faculty at the University of Pennsylvania the in 1997, Dr. Neumar began building a laboratory focused on elucidating the molecular mechanisms of acute brain injury with the ultimate goal of reducing brain damage after stroke, cardiac arrest and head trauma. Dr. Neumar's research has been funded through the NIH, American Heart Association, and private foundations. Consistent with the multidisciplinary nature of this line of investigation, Dr. Neumar has developed extensive collaborative relationships with investigators both within and outside the institution. Trainees working in the laboratory have included undergraduate students, graduate students, medical students, emergency medicine residents and research fellows, and post-doctoral researchers.top
