The Research Division of the Department of Anesthesiology conducts a broad range of clinical and basic science research. The mission of our research
is to understand the mechanisms of neurological and heart disease, pain and anesthetic toxicity. Research in the Department is primarily funded through
grants from the National Institutes of Health and non-profit foundations such as the American Heart Association. We have a mix of basic scientists an
clinical anesthesiologist working together to address important clinical/translational research questions. Department investigators have a strong record
of collaboration amongst investigators within the Department, other departments at University of Colorado Denver and investigators at other institutions.
Individual faculty research interests and Programs are described under subheadings linked from this page.
