Research in Dr. Meyers' laboratory takes place on several levels. He has funded VA merit review and NIH R01 grants on physiology of the liver; specifically on Tgß receptors during liver regeneration and bile duct hyperplasia, and the physiology of the denervated liver. He also has a number of funded clinical projects, the largest of which is a grant from US Surgical Corporation for around 3 million dollars for cooperative studies in laparoscopy. An additional 4 million has been granted via his effort for an annex to the vivarium, and US Surgical has promised a renewal award of around 4 million dollars. He is the scientific director of the Southern Surgeons Club, which has written the definitive papers analyzing laparoscopic cholecystectomy and now finishing a project on laparoscopic hernia. The reports on Dr. Meyers' series of bile duct injuries and their repair has also set the standard for diagnosis and management of this condition. Another report is ongoing on the medicolegal aspects of laparoscopy.
