Mallory A. Perry-Eaddy

Mallory A. Perry-Eaddy, PhD, RN, CCRN, is an Assistant Professor at the University of Connecticut School of Nursing, with a joint appointment in the School of Medicine Department of Pediatrics. She is a pediatric critical care nurse and translational scientist dedicated to improving outcomes of all critically ill children, especially those with sepsis and those from underserved populations. To this end, she is an NIH/NIGMS MOSAIC K99/R00 Fellow and NIH/NHLBI PRIDE Scholar in Functional and Translational Genomics. Recently, she completed a Provost’s Postdoctoral Fellowship at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, affiliated with the University of Pennsylvania School of Nursing.

As a promising early-stage investigator, her program of research aims to understand the potential role of inflammation in physical outcomes in children who survive critical illness. Dr. Perry-Eaddy has authored manuscripts on topics such as pediatric critical illness outcomes, sleep, and pain transitions using omics-based approaches. Her work is currently funded by an NIH/NIGMS (R00GM145411) grant and an American Association of Critical Care Nurses Impact Grant. She has incorporated racial and ethnic disparities into her program of research, including co-authoring several manuscripts related to pain bias and inequalities, pediatric sepsis disparities, and social determinants of health in pediatric acute respiratory failure and its impact on quality of life and resource utilization after discharge.

Dr. Perry-Eaddy is an active member of the interdisciplinary Pediatric Acute Lung Injury and Sepsis Investigators Network, American Thoracic Society, American Association of Critical Care Nurses, and the Society of Critical Care Medicine.
