Anesthesia, Critical Care and Pain Medicine
Advancing the science of anesthesiology by generating new knowledge is part of the mission of the Department of Anesthesia, Critical Care and Pain Medicine at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center. Consistent with this goal, many of our faculty are actively involved in a wide array of ongoing clinical and laboratory research projects.
Center for Anesthesia Research Excellence (CARE)
CARE exists to simplify and streamline the research process for department investigators. By bringing together existing expertise in all aspects of clinical research, from study start up, to execution, close-out and publication, CARE can help Anesthesia department members make their research endeavors more efficient, successful, and compliant with research regulations.
For more information please visit the CARE website.
Participation in research is an optional part of residency and fellowship training. Residents may spend half of their CA-3 year engaged in research, or spend up to eighteen months of a four-year anesthesia residency conducting laboratory or clinical research. In addition, the NIH Anesthesia Center Grant awarded to the Harvard Anesthesia Departments provides two-year fellowships to support residents spending at least 80% time in research. These fellowships begin after the CA-3 year, and research may be conducted in laboratories of the four Harvard Anesthesia Departments (BWH, Massachusetts General, Beth Israel-Deaconess, Children's), other hospital-based laboratories, Harvard Medical School, or MIT.
Announcement: Research Grants & Awards
International Anesthesia Research Society (IARS) Awards and Grants Program
Frontiers in Anesthesia Research Award - $750,000
Established in 1995 to foster innovation and creativity by an individual researcher in the anesthesiology field, this grant is awarded triennially.
IARS Mentored Research Award - $600,000
Intended to support investigations that will further the understanding of clinical practice in anesthesiology and related sciences, this grant is awarded annually to up to four research projects.
SCA-IARS Research Grants - $200,000
In 2009 the IARS pledged a gift of $1 million dollars to the SCA Foundation to support the SCA-IARS Starter and Mid-Career Grants, and renewed that commitment in 2014 with additional funds. A single $100,000 Mid-Career Grant and two $50,000 Starter Grants are awarded each year. For more information regarding an SCA-IARS Research Grant, visit the SCA Foundation website.
Foundation for Anesthesia Education and Research (FAER) Grants
FAER provides several funding opportunities for anesthesiologists and trainees annually. For a comprehensive overview of all FAER research grant opportunities, visit the website for FAER research grants.
