When ASA established the Foundation for Anesthesia Education and Research in 1986, it aimed “to encourage promising young anesthesiologists to pursue academic careers and to facilitate the expansion of research in anesthesiology.”1  Nearly three decades, more than $25 million expended and 440 grants awarded later, what progress have we made toward this goal? What is the return on the research investment, and how does it impact the specialty and patient care as a whole?
A study by Paul S. Pagel, M.D., Ph.D., and Judith A. Hudetz, Ph.D., “Scholarly Productivity and National Institutes of Health Funding of Foundation for Anesthesia Education and Research Grant Recipients,” published in the September 2015 issue of Anesthesiology, examined 397 individuals who received FAER grants between 1987 and 2012 to determine the influence of FAER funding on an individual’s scholarly productivity and ability to receive NIH funding.2
