Research Labs

  • The Brambrink Lab studies anesthetic-induced developmental neurotoxicity and brain ischemia, using animal models to evaluate the impact of anesthetics on neuroapoptosis and learning behavior.

  • The Clarke Lab focuses on how Ca2+ channels on the plasma membrane couple to the ryanodine receptor and control gating of the receptor.

  • Dr. Danielsson’s research focuses on investigating the role of calcium-activated chloride channels in the treatment of asthma and acute bronchospasm.

  • The D’Armiento Lab's goal is to develop insight into lung physiology and pathology by understanding the mechanisms altering lung injury and repair and translating the findings into clinical solutions.

  • Pediatric surgery patients are vulnerable to iron deficiency and red blood cell transfusion. We aim to define the benefit of iron supplementation and blood conservation strategies to improve outcomes.

  • The Epi Lab focuses on population-based studies of injuries, anesthesia safety, and perioperative outcomes with novel epidemiologic designs, and statistical and machine learning techniques.

  • The Garcia lab focuses on neurophysiology (including human/rodent EEG and patch-clamp electrophysiology) and behavioral testing in animal models.

  • The research of the Hasko Lab is centered on the role of P1 (adenosine) and P2 (ATP) purinergic receptors in regulating inflammation and organ function in sepsis.

  • The HT Lee Lab's research focuses on the pathomechanisms of perioperative acute kidney injury and translational approaches to attenuate this injury.

  • The Hua Research Lab uses mixed methods to conduct studies that aim to improve the quality of palliative and end-of-life care and critical care through evidence-based implementation strategies.

  • The Ing Lab's research focuses on evaluating short and long-term perioperative outcomes in children using data from established birth cohorts, administrative databases, and electronic health records.

  • The main research interest of the Joshi Lab is the delivery of drugs by the intraarterial route to treat brain diseases.

  • Our lab is interested in evaluating the neurotoxic and neuroprotective effects of low-dose carbon monoxide (CO) in the developing brain.

  • The Marcos Vidal Melo Research Laboratory primarily focuses on understanding, preventing and treating acute lung injury, especially perioperative lung dysfunction and injury.

  • The focus of the Wagener Lab is on biomarkers, early detection of organ injury, and the effect of vasopressin and other medications on liver blood flow during transplantation.

  • The Yang Lab is interested in understanding how pain, sleep, and the immune system regulate brain development and function.

  • The Yocum Lab is interested in understanding the role that “peripheral” GABAA receptors play in immune and lung physiology.
