Dr. Baldwin’s laboratory aims to improve critical illness survivorship and spans three areas of study.
- We conduct epi-translational research to endophenotype acute respiratory failure survivors and elucidate the mechanisms post-ICU frailty as therapeutic targets for improving physical recovery. We have identified frailty subtypes in acute respiratory failure survivors, and discovered that aging-related plasma biomarkers of inflammation, neuro-endocrinopathy, and muscle mitochondrial myopathy are potential therapeutic targets for post-ICU interventions.
- We conduct clinical and epidemiologic research with a focus on clinical risk prediction modeling and health disparities outcomes.
- We conduct research related to palliative care that aims to improve ICU survivorship. We developed novel palliative care interventions for mechanical ventilation patients, such as chaplain-led communication-board-guided spiritual care.
