    Laboratory Focus

    The Systemic Inflammation Laboratory (Fever Lab) is a basic research unit of the Trauma Program of St. Joseph’s Hospital and Medical Center, a Level-1 Trauma Center.

    The laboratory was created as the Trauma Metabolic Laboratory in 1986. From 1986 to 1999, the laboratory was directed by Malayappa Jeevanandam, PhD. During that time, the laboratory focused on studying the metabolic consequences of trauma disease.

    Since December 1999, the laboratory has been headed by Andrej Romanovsky, MD, PhD. The new research focus of the laboratory is on the neural basis and molecular mechanisms of the physiological and behavioral manifestations of systemic inflammation.

    Dr. Romanovsky’s primary interest is in studying mechanisms of fever and hypothermia associated with systemic inflammation.
