Jayshil J. Patel, MD
Associate Professor of Medicine, Medical College of Wisconsin, Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
Dr. Patel is an exceptional recipient of this award, having
been prolific in his career as a physician and as a researcher. Dr. Patel has an
interest in malnutrition and nutritional support in critically ill patients. Dr.
Patel has participated in several clinical trials related to nutritional
support. He has received grant support for several studies related to nutrition
in critical illness, including ASPEN Rhoads Research Foundation Awards for
"Phase II Randomized Trial of B12 in Septic Shock" and "Early
Enteral Nutrition in Septic Shock." His research has resulted in over
seventy published manuscripts, with a significant number on malnutrition,
nutritional support, and glucose management in critically ill patients. In 2021
Dr. Patel will continue investigating the safety and tolerance of early EN in
mechanically ventilated patients with septic shock. His multicenter team is
proposing an NIH-sponsored phase III (multicenter) investigator initiated RCT
to evaluate the feasibility of and explore mechanisms behind hypothesized
benefit of early EN in mechanically ventilated patients with septic shock. This
study will hopefully be the precursor to the definitive trial evaluating the
efficacy of early EN in septic shock. Dr. Patel has been very active within
ASPEN and is well respected among physician members of the society. Dr. Patel's
best work is yet to come.
