Bio

Dr. Balamuth is an institutional leader in pediatric sepsis and a rising national leader in pediatric sepsis recognition and care. She has played a key role in developing and implementing a clinical practice guideline to care for patients with suspected sepsis at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. She has also worked collaboratively with sepsis leaders throughout the institution to create a comprehensive prospective registry for patients with suspected sepsis, which allows us to track sepsis epidemiology and outcomes at CHOP.

Dr. Balamuth recently completed a K12 award from the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute studying sepsis recognition in the emergency department using both epidemiologic and translational approaches. She has been awarded a K23 from the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development to study RNA expression profiling in pediatric sepsis recognition.
