About Timothy E Morey

Timothy M. Morey, MD, completed his residency at UF Health Shands Hospital in Gainesville, Fla. In 1996, he began his Foundation for Anesthesia Education and Research-funded pharmacology research fellowship and then joined the University of Florida College of Medicine faculty in 1997. 

Over the course of Dr. Morey’s career, he has served in many capacities throughout the department, college and university. Dr. Morey’s research interests include measuring medication adherence using exhaled breath, employing exhaled propofol concentrations to understand anesthetic depth, alternative formulations for propofol, unique locations for pulse oximetry in patients with low perfusion states, and others. Some of this technology has been transferred for development and commercialization to Xhale, a faculty start-up company headquartered in Gainesville. 

 

Dr. Morey has been the recipient of various awards throughout his career. Some highlights include the Humanitarian Award for “University of Florida and Shands Haitian Relief Efforts” and the TW Andersen Resident Research Award in 1996. He has provided cover art on several peer-reviewed journals, including Anesthesiology and Anesthesia and Analgesia.
