Clinical Research

The Clinical Research Division is responsible for conducting patient and subject-oriented studies within the Department of Anesthesiology.

Some of the current studies include early-phase trials of novel neuromuscular blockers, and volunteer subject studies using anesthetic drugs to investigate human consciousness and memory. Patient-oriented clinical research includes interests in postoperative delirium and cognitive dysfunction, transesophageal echo, clotting dysfunction, pain phenotyping and new approaches to postoperative and chronic pain. 

Led by Dr. Kane O. Pryor, an experienced researcher and founding member of the Neurological Outcomes Network for Surgery (NEURONS) research group, the division employs a full-time research nurse coordinator, seven research assistants, a regulatory administrator, and a statistical consultant. The team provides full support for the successful development, oversight, and publication of scientifically rigorous clinical research in leading specialty journals and in high-impact general medical journals.
