Clinical Research Assistant: Kellen Knowles
Internal Medicine Resident
Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center
Born and raised in the sunny paradise of Nassau, Bahamas, Kellen is a graduate of Purdue where he studied Biomedical Engineering. He is a 2018 alum of Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and is currently an Internal Medicine resident at the Johns Hopkins Bayview campus. He is applying into cardiology and is excited about ways to apply engineering and technology to improving clinical medicine. As a part of the Corrie team, he helps lead the Corrie-Caregiver group, focused on mHealth applications to support the informal caregivers (friends and family) of cardiovascular disease patients. The Corrie-Caregiver group believes that the important role of caregivers has been largely overlooked by cardiologists, resulting in additional caregiver burden and worse patient outcomes. Their group aims to raise awareness and improve physician engagement with caregivers of cardiovascular disease patients to help improve outcomes in both caregivers and patients. In his free time, Kellen is an avid traveler and enjoys hiking, playing board games, snowboarding and playing tennis and volleyball. He’s completed several sprint triathlons and in his quest for adrenaline rushes, he is also a fan of bungee jumping, sky diving and enjoys riding motorcycles.
