Academic Bio

Dr. Rondina is currently the principal investigator on a K23 NIH Grant focused on understanding how platelet functions are altered in sepsis to promote thrombosis and an R03 grant from the National Institutes of Aging studying age-related changes in platelet and leukocyte signaling pathways. He has also been a co-investigators on multiple bench-to-bedside R01s identifying how dysregulated platelet functions contribute to inflammatory and thrombotic syndromes as a result of major surgery, acute bacterial and viral infections, diabetes, and obesity. Dr. Rondina’s work has received national and international recognition and contributed to improving our understanding of platelet functions. His work has been published in such journals as The Journal of Thrombosis and Haemostasis, Chest, and The Journal of Experimental Medicine.

Dr. Rondina recently received a Young Investigator Award from the American College of Chest Physicians and a New Investigator Award from the American Geriatric Society. In addition, he has served on NIH study section, mentored numerous young investigators from the University of Utah, Germany, and Brazil, and served as referee for journals such as the American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine, The Journal of Thrombosis and Haemostasis, and Thrombosis and Haemostasis.

Dr. Rondina’s expertise in thrombotic and inflammatory disorders and his work uniting basic science and clinical research supports the mission of the University of Utah in providing cutting edge, personalized healthcare to our patients and advancing our understanding of how to prevent and treat thrombotic disorders.
