Jason Elinoff, MD


Dr. Jason Elinoff is currently an Assistant Clinical Investigator in the Clinical Center's Critical Care Medicine Department and serves as the co-director of the department's Critical Care Ultrasound Training Program.

Dr. Elinoff earned his undergraduate degree in Chemistry from Princeton University and his degree in Medicine from the University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine. He went on to complete internship and residency training in Internal Medicine at the Massachusetts General Hospital. Following his fellowship training in Critical Care Medicine at the NIH and Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine at Johns Hopkins University, Dr. Elinoff was appointed to Staff Clinician in the Critical Care Medicine Department at the NIH in 2011.

His research interests include endothelial biology and the role of the endothelium in both acute (septic shock) and chronic (pulmonary arterial hypertension) forms of inflammation.
