Biography

Charlene Ong, MD, MPHS, is an Assistant Professor of Neurology and Neurosurgery at Chobanian and Avedisian School of Medicine (BUSM), and clinical Neurointensivist at Boston Medical Center (BMC), and a lecturer at Harvard Medical School. She received her undergraduate degree at University of Pennsylvania, her MD at Columbia University and her Master’s in Population Health Sciences at Washington University School of Medicine. Her research focuses on the development and validation of data-driven tools to support clinical decision making in patients with catastrophic neurologic injury including ischemic and hemorrhagic stroke, traumatic brain injury and anoxic brain injury. She receives support from the National Institute of Health through a K-award, and has also received foundational support from the American Brain Foundation, Philips-MIT, Peter-Paul Career Development Committee and Boston University Center for Translational Science Institute. Through machine learning methods, understudied physiologic biomarkers, and dynamic multimodal risk prediction methods, she aims to reduce morbidity and optimize treatment decision making in patients with acute neurologic disease.
