The clinical research endeavors in the Department of Anesthesiology, under the direction of Director of Clinical Research, Jacques Ya Deau, MD, PhD, are fundamental to our mission to advance the field of regional anesthesia through discovery and innovation.
Through our research, we attempt to gain a better understanding of how to best use anesthetics and analgesics to provide optimal care to our patients. Subsequently, publication of our research in prominent peer-reviewed journals contributes to the advances in the international anesthesia community. To this end, our commitment to support our physician investigators in conducting high quality research is paramount to the achievement of our research goals.
Key to the success of our research program is our multi-disciplinary collaborations within HSS and beyond. We have successfully partnered with our surgeon co-investigators through research initiatives of the Anesthesia/ARJR Research Collaboration as well as with surgeons in the Foot and Ankle and Spine Services We also maintain formal collaboration with the HSS Epidemiology and Biostatistics Core and Division of Biostatistics and Epidemiology of the Department of Public Health, Weill Cornell Medical College, which provide us with expert statistical, methodological, and epidemiological support for all aspects of research.
Led by Clinical Research Manager, Carey Ford, our team of dedicated research staff assists in conducting studies of varying protocol designs such as randomized controlled trials, registries, and observational studies.
