Isaac Luria, M.D., joined us as an assistant professor of anesthesiology in the Division of Acute Pain Medicine in September 2021. He completed a yearlong fellowship in our Division of Acute Pain Medicine this summer after completing his anesthesiology residency with us.
Luria earned his medical degree at UF, as well as his undergraduate degree in physics and a master’s degree in materials science and engineering with a focus in biomaterials. After completing his master’s degree and before attending medical school, Luria worked as a simulation engineer in the Department of Anesthesiology, which allowed him to collaborate with medical colleagues of all specialties and assist with applied research projects.
Luria has contributed to numerous abstracts, presentations, and peer-reviewed publications, including a book chapter on anesthesia machine failures. He has also participated in several projects, including leading the production of a video to educate UF Health patients about pressure ulcers and helping build medical simulation equipment.
In his free time, he enjoys hiking and kayaking on the local rivers and springs.
