He has over 30 years research experience in the field of cardiac arrest resuscitation. His basic science research has focused on molecular mechanisms of post-cardiac arrest brain injury and therapeutic strategies to improve neurologic outcomes after cardiac arrest. His research also includes large animal and clinical studies or extracorporeal cardiopulmonary resuscitation for refractory cardiac arrest. He currently serves as PI for an AHA-Funded Strategically Focused Research Center Grant entitled Michigan Center for Resuscitation Innovation and Science (M-RISE).  M-RISE is focused on developing, testing and implementing neuroprotective therapies in cardiac arrest.  Professor Neumar previously chaired the American Heart Association Emergency Cardiovascular Care Committee and currently serves as Co-Chair of the International Liaison Committee on Resuscitation (ILCOR)
