Professor Michael Matthay (2009)

Michael A. Matthay, MD is a Professor of Medicine and Anesthesia at the University of California, San Francisco and a Senior Associate in the Cardiovascular Research Institute. He is Director of the Critical Care Medicine Training in the Department of Medicine and Associate Director of the Intensive Care Unit. He received his AB from Harvard University in 1969 and his MD from the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine in 1973. Dr. Matthay received clinical training in Internal Medicine at the University of Colorado from 1973-76 and in Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine from the University of California at San Francisco from 1977-78. He also received research training from the Cardiovascular Physiology Laboratory, University of Colorado in 1976 and the Cardiovascular Research Institute from 1978-79.

Dr. Matthay?s basic research is focused on active ion and fluid transport mechanisms that account for the resolution of pulmonary edema as well as mechanisms that account for alveolar epithelial repair after acute lung injury. His studies are carried out in both in vivo and in vitro models. His clinical research is focused on the mechanisms that account for the pathogenesis and resolution of clinical acute lung injury and pulmonary edema. He has a new interest in the role of allogeneic mesenchymal stem cells for acute lung injury.

He is currently on sabbatical at the University of Paris for one year from June 2009 until June 2010.
