Krzysztof “Kris” Laudanski, MD, Ph.D., is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Anesthesiology and Critical Care at the University of Pennsylvania. His research interests focus on regulating DNA expression in survivors after critical care illnesses, health care operations/medical decision-making processes, and healthcare innovation (artificial intelligence, nanotechnology). He is a PI on the NIH-funded project and founder of a start-up, Qbimm Diagnostic. Since his research showed that suboptimal decision-making processes might expose patients to unnecessary risks and have negative economic consequences for hospital systems, he suggested, developed, and implemented artificial algorithms in critical care settings. Dr. Laudanski is particularly interested in integrating artificial intelligence algorithms with wearable devices, predictive medicine, and alternative healthcare delivery models. Adjusting health care operations and delivery based on availability, cultural specificity, and local demands is another area of interest that Kris frequently pursued in austere and remote settings. He has been a mentor, believing that mentorship is creative and fulfilling work to maximize students’ potentials. His past mentees work at various academic positions (Stanford, Yale), private companies (Merck), or were awarded prestigious scholarships (NSF).
