Dr. Remy is an international expert in adult and pediatric sepsis, COVID disease, and global health. As an adult and pediatric critical care physician, his laboratory is focused on two areas: heme-based trafficking and signaling in immune dysregulation in context of diseases of intravascular hemolysis (COVID, sepsis, malaria, sickle cell disease, thalassemia) and after red blood cell transfusion; and real time immunophenotyping of pro and hypoinflammatory states to identify timing for immunoadjuvant therapies. During the COVID-19 pandemic, Dr. Remy has cared for over two thousand patients in the adult and pediatric ICU while pivoting his laboratory activities to understanding the evolution of the disease in both a hematologic and immune functional approach. Dr. Remy in collaboration with Dr. Richard Hotchkiss were among the first in world to demonstrate a covid-19 immunosuppressive phenotype demonstrating significant T cell exhaustion in patients with critical illness. Dr. Remy’s first authored manuscript on care of adults in the pediatric ICU was the featured article in Pediatric Critical Care Medicine. He has been featured on a number of news programs including CNN, CBS Evening News, BBC News, People Magazine, NBC News, Reuters, USA today, and many other local and international news stations on his experiences during this pandemic and speaking on the immunologic consequences of disease, pediatric multisystem inflammatory syndrome (MIS-C), public health measures and schools, and potential therapies for SARS-CoV-2 infection.

University Hospitals is committed to transparency in our interactions with industry partners, such as pharmaceutical, biotech, or medical device companies. At UH, we disclose practitioner and their family members’ ownership and intellectual property rights that are or in the process of being commercialized. In addition, we disclose payments to employed practitioners of $5,000 or more from companies with which the practitioners interact as part of their professional activities. These practitioner-industry relationships assist in developing new drugs, devices and therapies and in providing medical education aimed at improving quality of care and enhancing clinical outcomes. At the same time, UH understands that these relationships may create a conflict of interest. In providing this information, UH desires to assist patients in talking with their practitioners about industry relationships and how those relationships may impact their medical care.
UH practitioners seek advance approval for certain new industry relationships. In addition, practitioners report their industry relationships and activities, as well as those of their immediate family members, to the UH Office of Outside Interests annually. We review these reports and implement management plans, as appropriate, to address conflicts of interest that may arise in connection with medical research, clinical care and purchasing decisions.
