Assistant Professor, Emergency Medicine
Frederick Korley MD, PhD is an Assistant Professor of Emergency Medicine. He completed his medical school education and residency training in emergency medicine at the Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine. Dr. Korley was selected chief resident during his final year of residency training. He joined the Johns Hopkins faculty in 2007 as the inaugural recipient of Robert E. Meyerhoff Endowed Professorship. He subsequently completed a doctoral degree in clinical investigation at the Johns Hopkins University Bloomberg School of Public Health with election to Phi Beta Kappa.
Dr. Korley's research activities involve translation of novel diagnostics to inform clinically rational, timely, and cost-effective diagnosis of cardiac and brain injury in the emergency department. The goal of his traumatic brain injury work is to improve the acute care diagnosis, risk-stratification and treatment of TBI by identifying distinct molecular subtypes of TBI that will allow for targeted treatment and improved outcomes. The central hypothesis of this work is that a data-driven, multi-disciplinary approach utilizing novel methods (proteomics, genomics, connectomics, advanced imaging) for characterizing patient and injury characteristics will enable a precise and personalized approach to delivering the right treatment to the right TBI patient at the right time. He is an inventor on a patent for a panel of novel traumatic brain injury biomarkers.
Dr. Korley is the recipient of numerous clinical and research awards including: The Johns Hopkins Clinical Scholars Award (2010 – 2012); Department of Emergency Medicine Teacher of the Year Award (2010); Department of Emergency Medicine Attending of the Year Award (2011); Johns Hopkins Clinician Scientist Award (2012 – 2014) and the Harold Amos Medical Faculty Development Award sponsored by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (2015 – 2019).
