The Basic Science Research Division is dedicated to the study of anesthetic mechanisms and molecular pharmacology, neurophysiology, biophysics, biochemistry, and cardiac physiology. The Department of Anesthesiology has several principal investigators, most of whom have independent NIH funding.
Basic Science research conducted by the Department of Anesthesiology is featured in several of the world’s most prominent scientific and specialty journals, including Nature, Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, Journal of Neuroscience, Natural Structure & Molecular Biology, Neuron, EMBO Journal, Anesthesiology, PLOS ONE, and the Journal of Neurophysiology.
Some of our principal investigators and links to their labs are featured below. The laboratories have trained a significant number of postdoctoral fellows who have gone on to successful research careers. Research opportunities exist for students of all levels.
