Research efforts are focused primarily in the area of functional genomics. Work has centered on investigating genetic polymorphisms in the surgical intensive care population that would predispose one to the development of the sepsis syndrome. As an extension of this work, there is ongoing investigation working to identify genetically susceptible populations at risk for developing various types of perioperative organ dysfunction. Parallel studies involve identification of a panel of biomarkers that would enable early diagnosis and intervention for those patients, both surgical and non-surgical that develop the sepsis syndrome. There is also active investigation in the human pharmacology laboratory in the department of anesthesiology involving the phase 1 testing of novel pharmaceutical agents in healthy volunteers.
