Research

The Department of Anesthesiology at the University of Michigan seeks to be the pre-eminent academic anesthesiology department in the world by making major advances in the field of anesthesiology, as well as medicine and science in general, and developing the next generation of outstanding researchers.

Fellows are expected to be involved with clinical research throughout their fellowship experience in order to present at the Society for Pediatric Anesthesia Conference, as well as other national meetings.  Under the guidance of mentors, fellows will have the opportunity to participate in an on-going research project, though fellows may also establish their own research under the guidance of the program’s other faculty.  Previous fellows and faculty have received distinguished national awards during their tenure at the University of Michigan Pediatric Anesthesia Department. The 2021-2022 fellow research projects were:

  • Dr. Zahra Sykes: “Paradoxical Agitation with Dexmedetomidine”, A Case Report. Presented at Society for Pediatric Anesthesiology Conference (SPA). Also, “Decreasing Burnout and Improving Wellness through Coaching.” Submitted to SPA.
  • Dr. Andrew Stein: “A Novel Simulation of the ABA OSCE: Success of a Remote, Virtual-interactive Course”.
  • Dr. Gale Goodlow: “Anesthetic Considerations for Children with TANGO2-Related Metabolic Encephalophathy and Arrythmias. Presented at International Anesthesia Research Society Conference. (IARS)
