Dr. Jean Hsieh’s overall research interest is in geriatric critical care and in improving cognitive and physical outcomes in survivors of critical illness. Her most recent research focuses on identifying modifiable risk factors for ICU delirium and on the prevention of post-operative delirium and cognitive decline. Her ongoing projects include a phase 2 randomized controlled trial on intranasal insulin for the prevention of post-operative delirium and cognitive decline in older cardiac surgery patients (CNS-Elders) and an observational study on the impact of cigarette smoking on ICU delirium and clinical outcomes.
Dr. Hsieh received a Bachelor of Arts from the University of California, Berkeley in Molecular and Cell Biology prior to obtaining her medical degree from George Washington University School of Medicine and Health Sciences. She then completed an internal medicine residency at Mount Sinai School of Medicine and a pulmonary and critical care fellowship at University of California, San Francisco. She also completed the UCSF Advanced Training in Clinical Research Program during her fellowship.
Dr. Hsieh joined the Einstein-Montefiore Division of Critical Care Medicine in July 2010 and graduated with distinction from the Clinical Research Training Program. She is a recipient of the National Institute on Aging GEMSSTAR Award and the Block Institute at Einstein and Montefiore Mentored Clinical and Translational Research Career Development Award.
