The proposed program will provide support for postgraduate research training within the Department of Anesthesiology within the Health Sciences Division of Columbia University. Qualified applicants will have committed to or be enrolled in postgraduate training in anesthesiology. The candidate pool is largely derived from an established research residency track (Apgar Scholars Society). The program will provide for four trainees, typically two in their fifth and two in their sixth postgraduate years. Research opportunities are offered by twenty one participating faculty members with proven records of success in the training of postdoctoral fellows, both within the Department of Anesthesiology as well as from nine collaborating departments, three in basic sciences: Pharmacology, Physiology and Cellular Biophysics, and the multidisciplinary Center for Neurobiology and Behaivor; and six clinical departments/divisions: Preventive Medicine, Pulmonary Medicine, Cardiology, Endocrinology, Neurosurgery, and Psychiatry. Research areas include, but are not limited to, modulation of neurotransmission by excitatory amino acids; molecular mechanisms of neuronal plasticity in chronic pain; structure/function of ligand gated ion channels; anesthetic and alcohol modulation of gene expression; smooth muscle cell signaling; adenosine receptor physiology; mechanisms of organ injury and protection from ischemia-reperfusion injury; molecular mechanisms of airway remodeling in chronic lung disease; clinical and basic studies in anesthetic-mediated developmental neurotoxicity, biomarkers of clinical organ injury, and epidemiology studies of clinical outcomes. With the continued support of the Department of Anesthesiology following training, this program will lead to the establishment of independent physician-scientistst modern methods and techniques to help meet the research needs of the specialty of anesthesiology in the twenty first century.
The proposed program will provide support for postgraduate research training in the Department of Anesthesiology within the Health Sciences Division of Columbia University to qualified applicants who have committed to or are enrolled in postgraduate training in anesthesiology. The goal of this training is to provide for the next generation of physician-scientists and researchers who will seek to improve medical care in areas relevant to perioperative care, palliative care, acute and chronic pain and health services delivery.
