Stanton K. Shernan, MD, is currently an Associate Professor of Anaesthesia at Harvard Medical School and the Director of Cardiac Anesthesia at the Brigham and Women’s Hospital. His academic interests have included education and research focused on the influence of perioperative echocardiography on perioperative clinical decision-making during cardiac surgery primarily involving valve procedures. In addition, Dr. Shernan has spent most of his career studying the mechanisms, treatment and risk factors including the potential role of genetic variation postoperative adverse outcomes including perioperative myocardial injury.
