Jeffrey Salomon, MD

Current Position: Assistant Professor of Pediatrics, Pediatric Critical Care Medicine
Assistant Professor of Cellular and Integrative Physiology (courtesy)

Education: B.S. Biology, University of North Texas, Denton, TX; B.A. History, University of North Texas, Denton, TX; M.B.A. Davenport University, Grand Rapids, MI; M.D. Saba University School of Medicine, Saba, Netherlands

Clinical Interests: ARDS and Ventilation Modalities, Sepsis, Gut Health, Simulation

Research Interests: Mapping the intestinal microbiome and metabolite profile in congenital heart disease and identifying mechanistic links with systemic inflammation following cardiopulmonary bypass. Developing a piglet model of cardiopulmonary bypass to assess gut protective interventions to minimize systemic inflammation.

Dr. Salomon focuses his research understanding the links between systemic inflammation, inflammatory gut bacteria, and metabolite profiling focusing on short chain fatty acid production and inflammatory eicosanoids. In the presence of intestinal barrier dysfunction inducing permeability, these byproducts of the gut environment can induce and exacerbate inflammation both locally and systemically. Through the RNA sequencing and flow cytometry, Dr. Salomon is identifying the mechanistic approach of how the bacteria, toxins, and metabolites influence and alter inflammatory pathways. Dr. Salomon hopes to develop disease specific synbiotics to promote production of beneficial organisms and cardioprotective metabolites in the gut prior to surgery aimed at minimizing the morbidity and mortality associated with the post-operative inflammation response.

Dr. Salomon also has interest in simulation education and critical care skills outreach training. He currently serves as Director of the Pediatric Fundamentals and Critical Care Support course at Children’s Hospital & Medical Center and University of Nebraska Medical Center and is expanding this course to provide learning opportunities for the greater Nebraska area and Midwest region. He is also interested in expanding the use of ventilatory modalities and providing education related to implementation of novel ventilatory strategies.
