Jeremiah Brown is the principal investigator on two NHLBI R01 grants focusing on predictive analytics for readmission and one NIDDK R01 focusing on implementation science. He leads a multidisciplinary team focusing on cardiovascular epidemiology and biomedical informatics research in the Department of Epidemiology. He has also received funding from the American Heart Association focusing on molecular epidemiology, Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) studying patient safety and acute kidney injury, and the Veterans Administration focusing on the development and evaluation of a national risk model for acute kidney injury. He is also the principal investigator on a five-year study focused on testing the use of a Virtual Learning Collaborative (VLC)—augmented by the novel use of Automated Surveillance Reporting (ASR) —to prevent acute kidney injurty (AKI) following cardiac catheterization. Sixteen VA hospitals are participating in the nationwide trials, whose findings have potential for improving patient care and oucomes across a wide array of preventive interventions.

An active collaborator on a global scale, Brown develops guidelines for the Acute Kidney Injury Network, is a guidelines taskforce member for the International Consortium of Evidence Based Perfusion, and is a taskforce member for the Workforce on Cardiopulmonary Bypass for the Society for Thoracic Surgeons (STS) where he leads the renal workgroup. He is a member of the American Heart Association (AHA), the Society of Thoracic Surgeons (STS), American Medical Informatics Association (AMIA), and the Northern New England Cardiovascular Disease Study Group (NNE).

A professor of epidemiology, and professor of biomedical data science at the Geisel School of Medicine, Brown is committed to supporting student research and instruction. He and the cardiovascular outcomes team train PhD students, postdoctoral fellows, clinical residents and fellows, Dartmouth Institute graduate students, medical school fellows, and undergraduate scholars through the Women in Science (WISP) program, Neukom Institute, and undergraduate advising & research (UGAR).

The author of more than 110 publications, Brown has published in the New England Journal of Medicine, Journal of the American Medical Association, British Medical Journal Quality and Safety, Circulation, and many others. He serves as epidemiology and statistics editor for the Journal of ExtraCorporeal Technology and a referee for more than a dozen additional medical journals. He earned a BS from St. Lawrence University and an MS and PhD from The Dartmouth Institute for Health Policy and Clinical Practice.
