Dr. Samsun Lampotang is a Professor of Anesthesiology in the division of Research. He is also the Director of the Center for Simulation, Safety and Advanced Learning Technology at the University of Florida in Gainesville, Florida. He received his PhD in mechanical engineering at the University of Florida, College of Engineering. His research interests are in simulation in healthcare, healthcare equipment, and the promotion of patient safety through enhancement of learning and improved equipment design.

Dr. Lampotang is part of the UF team that conceived the patented technology behind the Human Patient Simulator. The team’s simulation research shifted to what has become transparent reality simulation on the web in the form of the Virtual Anesthesia Machine (VAM) simulation. The simulation portfolio has become diversified to include airway devices, perioperative hemostasis, CVVH/dialysis, pharmacokinetics, and physics.
