Statement of expertise for the sub-committee: The goal of my research efforts is to develop better general anesthetics. The novel anesthetics developed in my laboratory have been featured in major anesthesiology and drug development textbooks and cover stories in Chemical & Engineering News and Anesthesia & Analgesia, and reviews in numerous journals. My work has been highlighted at multiple annual meetings of the ASA and the STA, and the subject of editorials and press releases by the Massachusetts General Hospital and the ASA. It has also led to four patents that have been licensed to industry. I am the lead inventor of many new anesthetic agents, one of which (ABP-700) is currently in clinical trials. I have been a member of the Board of Directors of the International Society of Anesthetic Pharmacology and have served on the Scientific Advisory Boards of the Association of University Anesthesiologists and the UCSF Program Project Grant. I have published >100 manuscripts, reviews, and book chapters and have been a grant reviewer for the NIH, the Royal College of Anaesthetists Project Grants Committee (UK), and the International Anesthesia Research Society. I am or have been a member of the Editorial Board of several scientific journals, a Section Editor for BMC Anesthesiology, and a member of the Faculty of 1000 in Medicine,.
