The Foundation for Anesthesia Education and Research (FAER) is now in its 27th year. There have been 482 research and education grants awarded during these 27 years. FAER’s mission is “to advance medicine through education and research in anesthesiology.” The more than $31 million in grants awarded since 1986 allow anesthesiologists to provide our patients, society and the specialty with measurable improvements in health.
As an example, during 1993-1996, Tim Brennan, M.D., Ph.D., received FAER grants for studying an acute pain model. These initial grants for Tim led to many more from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and are allowing our physicians across the globe to better treat pain in our postoperative patients. Dr. Brennan was able to systematically generate new knowledge and advocate for better pain care in postsurgical patients.
