    Carl Schulman, professor of surgery, Eunice Bernhard Endowed Chair in Burns, and director of the William Lehman Injury Research Center, has been appointed executive dean for research, Miller School Dean and Chief Academic Officer Edward Abraham announced last week.

    In making the announcement, Abraham expressed his deep appreciation for Dushyantha Jayaweera, M.D., senior associate dean for research who had served in that role, for his multiple contributions to the Miller School’s research enterprise, and for taking on the additional responsibilities. He will continue to be an integral part of the research leadership as senior associate dean for research.

    In his announcement, Abraham said:

    Dr. Schulman has a long and distinguished history of service to the Miller School and the community. He earned his medical degree from the University of South Florida College of Medicine and completed training in general surgery and received additional training in trauma and surgical critical care at the University of Miami/Jackson Memorial Medical Center.

    He also received a Master of Science in Public Health and Ph.D. in epidemiology from the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine. Dr. Schulman has been involved in undergraduate and graduate medical education, and is currently the associate program director for the general surgery residency program. He has mentored many surgical residents and graduate students in his clinical laboratory, including serving in advisory roles for their MPH and Ph.D. thesis and dissertation work. He is the director of a federally funded international telemedicine program and leads the medical content creation team for the Defense Health Agency.

    With research interests focusing on the epidemiology of burns and trauma, Dr. Schulman has been awarded grants from The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, the Department of Defense and the CDC, among others. He has authored more than 140 peer-reviewed publications and is a reviewer for numerous journals. He is currently the principal investigator for the BMW Crash Research Program at the University of Miami. Dr. Schulman was recently elected to the Burn Science Advisory Panel of the American Burn Association (ABA). This panel oversees all ABA-affiliated clinical trials, guiding and supporting all aspects of the clinical research enterprise. He is the principal investigator on a DOD-funded Phase 1 and 2 human clinical trial, which is the first trial to look at the use of allogeneic mesenchymal stem cells in the treatment of deep second-degree burns.

    Dr. Schulman has served on numerous University of Miami faculty and search committees, and was one of the inaugural recipients of the Miller School’s Citizenship Award. He was elected by the faculty and served as first vice speaker of the Medical School Faculty Council from 2008-2013 and then as speaker from 2013 to the present. He is also a member of Iron Arrow, the highest honor attained at the University of Miami.
