Chris is originally from Abington, Massachusetts. He completed his undergraduate degree in Chemistry at Boston College in 2014. During this time, Chris worked in the Center for Resuscitation Science Internship program for two and half years. Following graduation, Chris joined the team full time as a research assistant, for which he has continued for the last two years. Now, as senior RA, Chris has taken on multiple responsibilities in the day to day operations of Center including Internship Coordinator. He is also the point research assistant on two Phase II clinical trials, one studying the effects of atorvastatin treatment on influenza with Dr. Chase and the other studying the treatment of thiamine for intubated populations with Dr. Berg. Chris has also been involved with many abstract publications in the last two years including a study of Cytochrome c levels in Septic Shock patients as well as a study looking at the association of severity of illness to Pyruvate dehydrogenase activity in patients with diabetic ketoacidosis. Finally, Chris has contributed to a multitude of different Quality Assurance initiatives happening at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center specifically in areas relating to rapid in hospital first aid and code blue response.
