NYU Resuscitation Research Group Saving Lives and Brains after Cardiac Arrest


New York University School of Medicine


Cardiac arrest remains a major health burden in the US with an annual incidence of over 1 million (350,000 out-of-hospital and 750,000 in-hospital) resuscitation events. Unfortunately despite great medical advancements over the past 40 years, cardiac arrest survival has remained relatively unchanged at approximately 20% for in-hospital and 5-9% for out of hospital events. The complications of cardiac arrest include brain injury, disorders of consciousness and neurocognitive deficits. However, it is increasingly recognized that a systematic approach to cardiac arrest and post-resuscitation care can significantly improve survival, neurological and neurocognitive outcomes. This knowledge, combined with the significant social and medical impact of this condition on human lives, has led to the development of a clinical and research program towards combatting this condition.


The NYU resuscitation research group is a newly established multi-disciplinary group that aims to identify novel methods to save the lives and brains of people who undergo cardiac arrest resuscitation. Our goal is to identify better methods aimed at the prevention and treatment of cardiac arrest as well as its complications. These include post-resuscitation syndrome, major brain injury, and disorders of coma and consciousness. In addition, we aim to explore quality of life issues, survivorship, and the mental and cognitive experience of cardiac arrest.


We are looking for an enthusiastic and dynamic individual who can demonstrate proficiency in medical and scientific writing. The work will focus predominantly on various aspects related to cardiac arrest resuscitation, the brain, post cardiac arrest brain injuries, and consciousness. In this role, you will assist the team to synthesize research findings, or the results of literature searches, into a suitable format for submission for research manuscripts, grant applications, study reports and institutional review board submissions. Other responsibilities may include researching, writing, and editing research reports and study protocols, developing and submitting scientific writing related to grant proposals to various funding agencies and organizations, including both public and private external entities, such as the National Institutes of Health (NIH), as well as supporting proposal and budget development. Further scientific work may include, literature searches, writing scientific manuscripts, textbook chapters, research protocols or other relevant research and scientific materials as directed by Director of Critical Care and Resuscitation Research.
