The Department Anesthesiology & Perioperative Care at UC Irvine recognizes that research is vital for the continued success and future development of our field.
Our department actively encourages and supports research on all levels, from residents participating in clinical research projects to faculty building full-scale research programs. Our goal is to promote academic anesthesiologists who are growing the field's clinical knowledge through evidence based research.
In addition to faculty and residents engaged in innovative clinical research, the department has several basic and translational research laboratories. This alliance of basic science faculty and clinical faculty facilitates the generation of exciting and board reaching research projects, including those focused on pain management and the molecular and cellular underpinnings of pain, non-invasive hemodynamic monitoring, geriatric anesthesia and pediatric perioperative anxiety and pain.
