Mission of the Center for Anesthesia Research

To conduct investigation into problems and questions faced by our colleagues and patients in the conduct of our specialty in the broadest sense. Investigations at all levels (molecular, cellular, animal, translational, clinical, epidemiological, policy) are expected to attract national attention and support, interdisciplinary collaborations, and the most qualified trainees

The Center for Anesthesia Research was established by the    Department of Anesthesiology and Critical Care in 1967 to encourage collaborative and interdisciplinary research and research training on problems relevant to anesthesiology and perioperative medicine, including critical care, pain, metrics and health policy.

The Longnecker Anesthesia Research Laboratories, opened in 2003 in the historic John Morgan Building of the Perelman School of Medicine, have provided modern and contiguous research space for collaborative science.

Weekly Research in Progress Seminars (RIPS), with speakers from the Department, University, and other institutions, including CME credit for faculty, are unique to Penn Anesthesia.
