Anesthesia ORThe Center for Anesthesia Research Excellence (CARE) is an entity that brings together the research resources in the department of Anesthesia, Critical Care and Pain Medicine. This core consists of a medical director of research, a clinical research administrator, statisticians, research coordinators and research assistants. We work closely with the Committee on Clinical Investigations, the Office of Sponsored Programs, the Clinical Trials Office, and the Harvard Catalyst’s Clinical Research Center at BIDMC.

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.
