Dear Colleagues,

We are excited about our annual research retreat coming up on Saturday April 11th. Put it in your calendar and plan on networking, learning, socializing, and presenting (optional). We especially encourage all of those who might be on the fence about participating in research to attend this event. More details to follow!

Ever felt like that grant you spent hundreds of hours on could have used some professional editing? Want to get some help responding to the summary statement and advice on whether the specific aims are adequately addressed in the body of the grant? The Department is supporting grant editing services. Please email Sarah Corey for ways to get your grant professionally reviewed and edited.

Also take a look at our colleagues who have received funding and awards for their research! 


Kristin Schreiber, MD/PhD was chosen by the International Anesthesia Research Society (IARS) to be the new Chair of the IARS Mentored Research Awards (IMRA) Review Board.

The IARS Mentored Research Awards (IMRA) are intended to support investigations that will further the understanding of clinical practice in anesthesiology and related sciences.
Awards / Grants
Linda Aglio has been awarded a $50,000 grant from the Program for Interdisciplinary Neuroscience (PIN) and the Women’s Brain Initiative (WBI.) 
This represents the first department Interdisciplinary Collaboration Between the Divisions of Neuroanesthesia and the Pain Management Center. Dr. Aglio is embarking on a new area of investigation that addresses the risk factors and gender disparities in opioid consumption after surgery. With her mentors Drs. Edwards and Jamison, she has assembled a novel study that will inform new ways to address the opioid challenge by better understanding gender differences in opioid consumption and spine surgery. This pilot study will investigate “ Digital Phenotyping to Monitor a CBT Pain Prevention Intervention for Women Undergoing Surgery.
Enrollment will begin soon for an NIH-funded multi-center interventional trial (lead by George Frendl) aimed at reducing post-operative pulmonary complications.

BWH PI: Gyorgy Frendl, MD, PhD
PI: Marcos Vidal Melo, MD, PHD
Jim Rathmell and Rob Edwards were awarded an 11 million dollar grant to serve as co-PIs (along with Maurizio Fava at MGH and Bob Dworkin at the University of Rochester) of the Clinical Coordinating Center for the Early Phase Pain Investigation Clinical Network (EPPIC-Net), part of NIH’s HEAL initiative. EPPIC-Net is a network of academic sites around the U.S. that will collaborate on clinical trials of non-opioid treatments for acute and chronic pain.

The Clinical Coordinating Center oversees this network, designing and managing the multicenter trials. Collectively, the network aims to reduce reliance on opioids by accelerating and improving early-phase clinical trials of non-addictive treatments for pain.
