Karim Brohi is a British surgeon who is currently the clinical director of the London Major Trauma Network, Professor of Trauma Sciences at Queen Mary University of London and a Consultant vascular and trauma surgeon for Barts Health NHS Trust at the Royal London Hospital. He founded the website trauma.org, due to what he perceived as inadequate care for major trauma patients. He coined the term 'acute traumatic coagulopathy' to describe how coagulopathy caused by traumatic injury results in more severe bleeding and organ failiure.
Surgeon, Post-doctoral researcher and Fulbright Scholar, Jo’s interest is the innate immune response to traumatic injury and its influence on patient recovery. Her PhD work identified an association between early immune cell responses and the development of multiple organ failure. This initiated new lines of investigation for the group, in the search for new therapeutic strategies to optimise trauma patient recovery.
Jo trained at Imperial College (St Mary’s Medical School) London and continues her General and Vascular Surgery training in the London Deanery. She developed an interest in trauma care during medical school and recognised the need for improved provision of trauma services in the UK. She spent six months working in a trauma unit in Cape Town, South Africa to gain additional trauma experience and holds a PhD in Trauma Science. During her Fulbright Year, Jo worked at the Level 1 trauma centre UPMC Presbyterian, in Pittsburgh USA, conducting research in Professor Tim Billiar’s Lab. Using a murine model, she investigated the innate-like lymphocytes and their response to traumatic injury. This again opened up new lines for investigation and collaboration.
