The Department of Anesthesiology's Research Division includes full-time Ph.D. faculty and technicians. The research team performs basic and clinical research, sponsors collaborative research opportunities for the clinical faculty, provides analytical support for the department, trains residents, fellows and students in research, consults in experimental design, assists in manuscript and grant preparation and promotes research within the department.
Third-year clinical anesthesia residents pursuing the Clinical Scientist Track participate in these research activities. In previous years, residents in the Clinical Scientist Track have presented original work at a number of national meetings, including the American Society of Anesthesiologists annual meeting.
