Research Opportunities

Interested residents are encouraged to participate in ongoing research, or pursue independent study during the Clinical Scientist Track. Well equipped anesthesia departmental laboratories are available, and there is a large supporting research staff including three full-time Ph.D.s employed by the department. Some areas of current basic science interest include preparation and study of liposomes, pharmacokinetic modeling and the study of the pharmacology of THAM.

Clinical research projects are ongoing in the departments of neuroanesthesia, pain management, cardiac, and obstetrical anesthesia. At present the departmental bibliography includes well over 500 papers and eight textbooks.
