Raymond S. Roginski, MD, PhD, Appointed Assistant Professor of Anesthesia at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine

(Philadelphia, PA) - Raymond S. Roginski, MD, PhD, has been appointed Assistant Professor in the Department of Anesthesia at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine.

Dr. Roginski attended Yale University, where he earned his BS and MS degrees in Molecular Biophysics and Biochemistry. He went on to receive another MS, his MD and PhD from the Albert Einstein College of Medicine of Yeshiva University. He performed his internship and residency in Anesthesiology at Albert Einstein Affiliated Hospitals in the Bronx, New York. Dr. Roginski was an Associate Professor of Anesthesia at the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey (UMDNJ)-Robert Wood Johnson Medical School, before joining Penn.

Dr. Roginski's research focuses on perioperative neuroprotection and neurodegenerative diseases, including autism. His Anesthesia interests include invasive neuroradiology, cardiology, ENT (ear, nose & throat), urologic surgery, day surgery and resident teaching. While at UMDNJ-Robert Wood Johnson Medical School, he discovered and mapped a pair of glutamate receptor-like genes named GRINL1A (chromosome 15) and GRINL1B (chromosome 4) in humans. He and his colleagues have also found these genes in rats and mice. At Penn, he continues to investigate the function of these genes and their role in neuroprotection and/or autism. To support his research, he has received funding from the Foundation for Anesthesia Education and Research, the American Cancer Society, the National Science Foundation, the Foundation for the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey, and the New Jersey Governor's Council on Autism.

He is a member of the American Society of Anesthesiologists, the Society of Neurosurgical Anesthesia and Critical Care, the International Anesthesia Research Society and the Society for Neuroscience. His research has been published in several journals including Cell, Molecular Cell Biology, Cytogenetics and Cell Genetics, Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, Federation of European Biochemical Societies (FEBS) Letters and Anesthesia Clinics of North America.
