Research in Anesthesiology has traditionally focused on a systems biology approach, consistent with the specialty’s clinical role in monitoring critical systems and ensuring survival during our most vulnerable stages of the perioperative period. Anesthesiology research has maintained a rewarding diversity of research areas, while developing new dimensions relevant to patient care and fostering state-of-the-art molecular approaches.
Our faculty includes world-class investigators (MD, MD/PhD, and PhD scientists) conducting multidisciplinary research in a number of areas with major programs in Cardiovascular, Neuroscience, Nanotechnology, Pulmonary, Pain, Pediatric, Obstetric, Transplant, and Simulation technologies. Sponsors for these activities include multiple federal and state funding agencies as well as several foundations.
Our departmental research forums encourage enjoyable and productive collaboration between our investigators. The rich interactive environment of the University of Florida enables our researchers to easily connect with world-leading investigators in all branches of biomedical research.
We strive to achieve true translational research, linking our basic and clinical research programs to deliver novel therapeutics and devices to the bedside, to directly investigate interventions and outcomes in our clinical arenas, and to perform relevant and insightful investigations at the basic, mechanistic level. To this end, the faculty have generated scores of patents and actively participate in the technology transfer process to more quickly allow patients to directly benefit from our discoveries.
We are also committed to providing a supportive environment for our trainees and junior faculty to ensure their successful development as independent investigators, including the Gravenstein Scholars Program to train aspiring resident physicians. Thank you for taking the time to visit our Research web pages, and to support our mission.
