Philip Verhoef’s research has focused on the hypothesis that innate responses play a critical role in the acute septic inflammatory response and on the role of the type 2 immune response as a mediator of protection against mortality in sepsis. His research has been published in the Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology, Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States, Nature, and Journal of Bronchology & Interventional Pulmonology.
Verhoef received a BA in chemistry and biology from the College of Wooster, in Ohio, and holds a PhD in pharmacology from Case Western Reserve University, along with an MD from its School of Medicine. While at Case Western Reserve, he was awarded the Minerva and Carl Wiggers Prize in Physiology. He completed a combined residency in internal medicine and pediatrics at the University of California, Los Angeles, and fellowship training in adult and pediatric critical care medicine at the University of Chicago, where he was a Coggeshall Fellow in the Department of Medicine.
