For the past 16 years, the Foundation for Anesthesia Education and Research (FAER) has sponsored the FAER-Helrich Research Lecture, which recognizes outstanding scholarship by a scientist. The lecture is part of the Celebration of Research program at ASA’s ANESTHESIOLOGY® annual meeting and is meant to inspire trainees and anesthesiologists to explore academic careers in research and teaching.
The 17th Annual FAER-Helrich Research Lecture will be presented by George A. Mashour, M.D., Ph.D., who is the Bert N. La Du Professor and Senior Associate Chair for Research in the Department of Anesthesiology at the University of Michigan. After residency and chief residency at the Massachusetts General Hospital/Harvard Medical School, George completed his fellowship in neuroanesthesiology at the University of Michigan and started as a faculty member 10 years ago at our institution. Since that time, he has created a multidisciplinary team and, subsequently, a multidisciplinary center focused on the study of consciousness. The Center for Consciousness Science, which George founded and directs, is one of only a few in the world and in just a few years has already established both an institutional and national reputation. One of the main questions the center focuses on is how anesthetics reversibly disrupt consciousness and what the implications are for other altered states of consciousness.
