Meyer Medical Research

Who are we?

We are physicians, scientists, engineers, nurses, and people committed to eliminating complications from biomedical devices. Our current focus is on reducing bleeding and clotting in the most common surgery performed in children under one year of age. Cardiopulmonary Bypass surgery is performed on over one million people each year and 20,000 of them are children. The most common complication after surgery is abnormal bleeding or clots that can lead to stroke or death. Moreover, this lifesaving technology can be used outside the operating room to support children and adults with heart or lung failure. If we can reduce the complications we can increase the use of this technology to save more lives.  Get in touch with us today to learn how you can support Meyer Medical Research.

Andrew D.J. Meyer, MD, MS

Principal Investigator

Dr. Meyer is a physician-scientist who integrates biomedical engineering and medical research to improve the lives of critically ill children.  As a member of the UT Health pediatrics faculty, he sees young patients at University Hospital, the pediatric clinical partner of UT Health San Antonio.  Dr. Meyer received his Bachelor of Science degree in nuclear engineering and material science and engineering, followed by a Master of Science degree in biomedical engineering. Dr. Meyer received the Doctor of Medicine (M.D.) degree in 2004, completed internship and residency training in internal medicine and pediatrics in 2008, and finished a clinical fellowship in pediatric critical care medicine in 2011.  That year, UT Health San Antonio recruited him to the pediatrics faculty to teach, see patients and conduct research.  Dr. Meyer has an active research program funded by the National Institutes of Health to study pro-thrombotic (pro-clotting) microparticles generated by the pediatric cardiopulmonary bypass system.  In recognition of his excellence, Dr. Meyer earlier this year was named the 2017 Junior Distinguished Research Scholar at UT Health San Antonio.
