Eric J. Seeley, M.D., F.C.C.P. graduated from Northwestern University in 1997 with an undergraduate degree in biomedical engineering. He attended the University of Chicago, Pritzker School of Medicine and graduated in 2003. During his medical school training he was a visiting Howard Hughes Fellow at Stanford during which he studied regulatory T-cells.
Dr. Seeley completed both his Internal Medicine Residency (2006) and Pulmonary and Critical Care Fellowship (2010) at UCSF. He became a research fellow at UCSF during which he studied neuro-immune interactions during severe infections and was the recipient of a prestigious NHLBI funded K23. He then returned to clinical medicine in 2013 and was the first fellow in the joint UCSF/PAMF Interventional Pulmonary fellowship program.
He has now joined the clinical faculty at UCSF as the Directory of Interventional Pulmonary medicine. This relatively new pulmonary sub-specialty focuses on minimally invasive bronchoscopic procedures frequently used to diagnose and treat lung cancer. Dr. Seeley also continues to attend in the medical and surgical ICUs at UCSF.

My research lies at the intersection of the nervous system and immunity. Specifically, I have been studying how noradrenergic neurons influence the immune response during severe infection in mice. These studies may have important implications for how states of heightened stress, that lead to elevations in systemic catecholamines, alter the immune system. A second area of research is the epigenetic imprint of severe sepsis on human monocytes.
