John Wood, PhD

Associate Professor of Molecular and Integrative Physiology and Surgery
Microcirculation Research


Dr. Wood received a joint appointment as a member of the Department of Surgery in 2006. He is also an Associate Professor in the Department of Molecular and Integrative Physiology which he joined in 1996. 

His research interests focus on microvascular inflammation in various settings. He has had a very successful collaboration with Dr. Norberto C. Gonzalez, Professor in the Department of Molecular and Integrative Physiology, on projects examining the mechanisms responsible for microvascular inflammation to acute system hypoxia as well as microvascular acclimatization to hypoxia. In addition, he has collaborated for several years with Dr. Michael Moncure on projects related to hemorrhagic shock-induced microvascular injury as well as protective effects of heme oxygenase in this model. Several surgical residents have been involved in these projects, including Dr. Al Casillan and Dr. James Howard.

Dr. Wood enjoys spending time with his wife Laurie, an Administrative Officer in the Department of Surgery, and his daughters.
