Dr. Sheth graduated from Johns Hopkins University and the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine. He was an intern at Brigham and Women's Hospital and a neurology resident and chief resident at Partners Neurology (Massachusetts General and Brigham & Women's Hospitals). After a fellowship in vascular neurology and neuro-critical care at Harvard, he was appointed the first neurology trained neuro-intensivist at the University of Maryland and R Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center. He moved to Yale as the founding chief of the Division of Neurocritical Care and Emergency Neurology and Chief of Clinical Research for the Department of Neurology.
His interests are in the advancement of therapies and care of patients with devastating acute neurological syndromes, especially those complicated by brain swelling and hemorrhage. He is a nationally recognized clinical and translational scientist and has directed a number of multicenters studies testing novel therapies against brain swelling, stroke, and hemorrhage. His research group also develops novel imaging and serum based biomarkers for the neuro-ICU and furthers understanding of prognosis. His research has been funded by the NIH, American Academy of Neurology, American Heart Association, US Army, and the Passano Foundation. He is the co-chair of several national working groups developing guidelines in malignant infarction.
