Most recently, she worked as an associate professor of surgery in the division of trauma/critical care at Rutgers New Jersey Medical School’s department of surgery. Mohr earned her medical degree from the New Jersey Medical School when it was still part of the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey, and completed her general surgery residency training at the affiliated University Hospital. Following her residency, Mohr was a fellow in surgical critical care and trauma at The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

During her fourteen years at University Hospital in Newark, New Jersey she progressed from medical director of the trauma/surgical progressive care unit to program director for the surgical critical care fellowship, and director of the surgical intensive care unit. She also worked as the director of trauma/critical care research at Hackensack University Medical Center.

Mohr’s clinical interests include trauma surgery, surgical critical care and emergency general surgery. Her research interests are in both basic and translational science, including examining the impact of stress following injury and shock on erythropoiesis, or red blood cell production. She is an NIH-funded researcher.
