biography

Dr. Matthew Delano is an Assistant Professor of Surgery in the Division of Acute Care Surgery, Section of General Surgery, at the University of Michigan. He provides clinical coverage in trauma, non-trauma emergency, general surgery and surgical critical care.

Dr. Delano received his BS in Chemistry in Latrobe Pennsylvania. He graduated from the Temple University School of Medicine in Philadelphia, completed his surgical residency at the University of Florida, where he also completed a post-doctoral fellowship and received his PhD in Microbiology and Immunology, and completed the Trauma Critical Care fellowship program at the University of Washington in 2014.

Dr. Delano is certified by the American Board of Surgery in General Surgery, and is board-eligible for the Surgical Critical Care exam. He is an ATLS instructor, and will be taking on the role of ATLS Director by mid-2015.

Dr. Delano's research is focused on building a research program centered on myeloid lineage development and dysfunction in the host response to injury and inflammation using basic and translational science methodologies. He is involved in more clearly defining the biological phenomenon underlying the abysmal mortality rate associated with trauma-induced sepsis and multisystem organ failure using animal models and human trauma and sepsis subjects. Over the next 5 years, he plans to develop an independent, extramurally funded laboratory from which to build a more robust research program centered on scientific collaboration and cross fertilization in the field of inflammation biology and human sepsis.
