Basic and clinical research within the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, Department of Anesthesiology and Critical Care Medicine (ACCM) is conducted and supported by faculty with M.D., M.D./Ph.D., and Ph.D. degrees, fellows, graduate students, and staff.
In addition to being excellent educators and providing the highest quality compassionate patient care, ACCM faculty must also advance knowledge in our specialty and in medicine globally. These individuals interact and collaborate in many important research areas and are well-trained cardiovascular and pulmonary physiologists and pharmacologists, biochemists, molecular and vascular biologists, neuroscientists, and clinical outcome scientists who have common research interests, particularly with respect to the brain, heart, lung, and muscle.
The ACCM Department is particularly interested in providing Anesthesiology residents and fellows a foundation to build strong careers in clinical and basic science research. This interest represents the culmination of our department's commitment to academic and intellectual excellence. One critical aim of the department is to bridge the gap between basic research and clinical medicine by performing research of the highest quality in both areas (translational research). The key aspect revolves around the idea of having clinicians and basic scientists working together in the research laboratory as well as in the clinical facilities.
