The Department of Anesthesiology is pleased to announce the 4th round of awardees for the Stimulating and Advancing ACCM Research Awards! This funding aims to allocate departmental investment funds that promote the career and program development of its faculty. StAAR awards are administered to faculty through a comprehensive, peer-reviewed process to support innovative research proposals that have a high likelihood of being leveraged into extramural funding. In the past 3 awards cycle, ACCM has funded 39 projects with a total of $1.8 million. These awards have resulted in 14 publications, 11 presentations at national meetings, and 11 extramural funding applications. We look forward to seeing the progress of these promising projects!
