Dr. Petersen earned an MD from University of Copenhagen (2008) and full European board certification as physician in 2009. His clinical work was centered around cardiology and emergency medicine and as former Chief Resident at major ER, his duties included disaster preparedness, triage, and resource management. His European medial training ensured a broad understanding of medical complexity and cross-discipline interactions.
Dr. Petersen’s research has most recently been focused on device development and as such he has been leading efforts to develop treatment devices both for emergency use in hospitals and for use in NASA’s countermeasure program, and he is very experienced in developing protocols for physiological human research.
He brings his broad experience to bear at CCTR, where he will assist the team in protocol development, clinical and physiological advice.
