Harnessing Data from the EHR to Understand Acute Brain Dysfunction in Pediatric Sepsis


Alicia M. Alcamo, MD
Attending Physician
Division of Critical Care Medicine
Children's Hospital of Philadelphia

Dr. Alicia M. Alcamo is an attending physician in the Division of Critical Care Medicine at CHOP. She obtained her BS in Biology at Elizabethtown College. It was during this time she had her first exposure to scientific research and she was fortunate to participate in several different experiences that sparked her interest in the scientific process and research design. During her time in medical school at The Ohio State University, she was able to complete a combined degree program where she received her MPH degree with a specialization in clinical and translational science alongside her medical doctorate. Her focus at OSU was on the neonatal population and exploring the disease process of necrotizing enterocolitis by evaluating risk factors and potential therapeutic targets. She completed her pediatric residency and chief residency at Cincinnati Children's Hospital. And then completed her fellowship in pediatric critical care medicine as well as an NIH T32 scholarship in neurointensive care and resuscitation science at the University of Pittsburgh. She joined CHOP's Division of Critical Care Medicine in 2019 as an attending physician.

Dr. Alcamo's research focuses on studying risk factors, mechanisms, and treatments of acute brain dysfunction in pediatric sepsis. Her initial work at CHOP has focused on the development and validation of a computational phenotype to identify acute brain dysfunction. Now, she has turned her focus to study risk factors and outcomes from acute brain dysfunction in pediatric sepsis.
