Department of Anesthesiology and Critical Care

The Penn Center for Anesthesia Research emphasizes translational and interdisciplinary science, both within the department and other departments and institutes in the schools of medicine, nursing, arts and sciences, engineering and veterinary medicine, on Penn's unified campus.

The mission of the Center for Anesthesia Research is to conduct investigations into problems and questions faced by our colleagues and patients in the broadest sense. Investigations at all levels (molecular, cellular, animal, translational, clinical, epidemiological, and policy) attract national attention and support, interdisciplinary collaborations, and the most qualified trainees.
