Department Dedicates Anesthesia Clinical Research Center

Regional AnesthesiaOn May 4, 2011, department chief Dr. Jeanine Wiener-Kronish and other faculty members dedicated the new Anesthesia Clinical Research Center to Dr. Carl Rosow during a ceremony in Davison lecture hall.

The Center was opened "thanks to Carl's foresight and urging that we needed a dedicated space for our research studies," Dr. Wiener-Kronish said.

Dr. Matthias Eikermann

Dr. Rosow is a teacher and a clinical pharmacologist with faculty appointments at Harvard, MIT, and Boston University. His research deals with the pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of opioids and sedative hypnotic drugs, as well as agents that suppress nausea and vomiting. He helped to develop bispectral EEG analysis, a technique for measuring anesthetic drug effect and reducing the chance of awareness during surgery.

Dr. Rosow's work set the stage for ongoing efforts to establish an institute to support basic, translational and clinical research, Dr. Wiener-Kronish said.

Dr. and Mrs. Jeffrey Buzen

Currently, the Center is being used for studies around sleep apnea under the direction of Dr. Matthias Eikermann, she said.

Additional speakers included Dr. Rosow; Dr. Eikermann; and Dr. and Mrs. Jeffrey Buzen, who established an endowed fund to support Dr. Rosow's research efforts. After their remarks, DACCPM faculty members toured the Center.
