About

Abdulla A. Damluji, MD, MPH is an Assistant Professor of Medicine at Johns Hopkins University and an interventional cardiologist at Sinai Hospital of Baltimore. During medical school, he joined the St. Mark’s Academic Institute (London) and helped conduct a large multicenter randomized-controlled clinical trial evaluating a new drug in the treatment of ulcerative colitis. After completing core clinical electives at St. Mark’s Hospital (London) and Johns Hopkins Hospital (Baltimore), Damluji graduated from University of Baghdad College of Medicine. Then, he joined the Johns Hopkins University Bloomberg School of Public Health and obtained a Master of Public Health in Epidemiology and Biostatistics. Subsequently, he joined the Johns Hopkins Department of Anesthesiology and Critical Care Medicine (2007) and Johns Hopkins Division Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine (2008) and gained a full-time academic experience focused on clinical outcomes and epidemiologic methods. During his research-track residency training at the Penn State University, he returned to Johns Hopkins Division of Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine and joined the Outcomes After Critical Illness and Surgery (OACIS) group as a postdoctoral fellow. He completed fellowship in general and interventional cardiology (current) at University of Miami. His current research interests focus on geographic and temporal patterns in patient outcomes after cardiovascular interventions. With advancement of structural heart technologies, he developed a research interest in resource utilization after trans-catheter aortic valve replacement as treatment for severe aortic valve stenosis. Along with his mentors, he is evaluating innovative systems of care for ST elevation myocardial infarctions (STE-MI) using the American Heart Association (AHA) “Mission: Lifeline” program. Through these numerous academic experiences, his goals are to pursue an academic career in health services research with a focus on clinical and economic outcomes in interventional cardiology and structural heart disease.
