Theodore C Bania, MD
- ASSISTANT PROFESSOR | Emergency Medicine
Dr. Bania completed his training in Emergency Medicine at New York Medical College/Metropolitan Hospital Center in 1991 and is currently Board Certified in Emergency Medicine. He completed his training in Medical Toxicology at New York University/NYC Poison Control Center in 1993 and is currently Board Certified in Medical Toxicology. Dr. Bania received a Master’s in Clinical Research at Albert Einstein College from the NIH funded Clinical Research Training Program in 2000. Dr. Bania has been actively involved and core faculty in Emergency Medicine Education since 1991. He has multiple original research articles evaluating various treatment of toxins including cardiovascular drug toxicity, chemical warfare agents and various recreational drugs. He was instrumental indeveloping models for lipid resuscitation therapy that expanded the use of lipids for drug toxicity. He has lectured nationally and internationally on his research in lipid resuscitation therapy.
Dr. Bania supervised the institutional research program at Mt. Sinai Roosevelt and Mt Sinai St. Luke’s by serving as IACUC Chair for over 10 years and IRB Chair for 5 years. He has served as the Director of Research at the Mt. Sinai Roosevelt and Mt Sinai St. Luke’s Emergency Department. He established a Division of Medical Toxicology at Mt. Sinai Roosevelt and Mt Sinai St. Luke’s in 1996 which provides Medical Toxicology Education to the Hospital and Emergency Medicine Residency and a Medical Toxicology Consultation Service. Dr Bania is a director of the Mt Sinai Roosevelt and Mt Sinai St Luke’s Research Associate program for 5 year. This program trains post graduate students in clinical research and give them exposure to the practice of Emergency Medicine. This program trains about 40-60 students per year. Dr. Bania will serve a 4 year term on the American Board of Medical Specialties Sub-board in Medical Toxicology.

As one of the pioneers in the development of Lipid Resuscitation Therapy for drug induced toxicity, Dr. Bania is interested in evaluating and developing other uses of lipids in drug toxicity. He is interested in the mechanism of action of Lipid Resuscitation and evaluating its use in a variety of toxins. Dr. Bania is also interested in research into the treatment of cardiovascular drug toxicity, chemical warfare agents and various recreational drugs. In addition, his research interest include the use of portable mobile devise to educate ED patients about HIV and encourage testing.
