It has been 29 years since the Foundation for Anesthesia Education and Research (FAER) started awarding mentored career development grants for research. And nearly three decades into FAER’s existence – perhaps now more than ever – we are witnessing the cumulative effect of the specialty’s investment.
One recent example comes from the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania, where last summer Mariah Kincaid, B.S., an M.D./M.P.H. candidate from Tufts University who will graduate in May, participated in a FAER-funded anesthesia research fellowship, alongside mentors and former FAER grant recipients Mark D. Neuman, M.D., M.Sc. and Lee Fleisher, M.D. Call it a “snowball effect:” It was a FAER recipient (Dr. Fleisher, Research Starter Grant, 1990) mentoring a FAER recipient (Dr. Neuman, Mentored Research Training Grant, 2011) mentoring a FAER recipient (Ms. Kincaid, Medical Student Anesthesia Research Fellowship, 2014).
