Professional Interests: My professional interests are the clinical pharmacology of intravenous anesthetic drugs. This has led me to clinical studies of many of the intravenous opioids and hypnotics used in anesthetic practice. However, my passion is not the drugs themselves, but rather the mathematical models that characterize drug behavior. These include conventional pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic models, inverse models (used to drive target controlled infusion systems), Bayesian models (used to handle model uncertainty), pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic models of drug interaction, models of receptor function that help elucidate mechanisms of drug action, and models that relate drug response to "in silico" pharmacogenetics.
Much of my work continues to involve the pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of propofol and synthetic opioids (fentanyl, alfentanil, sufentanil, and remifentanil). My initial research for these drugs was sponsored by ICI/Astra Zeneca (propofol), Janssen (fentanyl, alfentanil, and sufenanil), and Glaxo (remifentanil). I have not had any consulting or funded research from those companies in more than 10 years.

Conflicts of Interest: My two ongoing consulting relationships are with Ethicon Endo-Surgical and Signature Therapeutics. My work for Ethicon Endo-Surgical involves chairing their "Anesthesia Advisory Panel" that has guided the development of the Sedasys sedation delivery system. My consulting has been provided to Ethicon Endo-Surgical pro bono since 2007. Signature Therapeutics is a biotechnology company I cofounded in 2003 to address unmet medical needs in anesthesia and pain management. I hold approximately a 5% equity interest in Signature Therapeutics.

Professional Interests: My research interest is patient outcomes after cardiac surgery with a particular focus on neurological complications. Over the past several years I have concentrated on neurological complications for women undergoing cardiac surgery. This attention was based on findings that showed female gender is an independent risk factor for stroke after cardiac surgery. Other professional interests include the management of perioperative arrhythmias. I further participated in industry-sponsored clinical trials of opioids, alpha-2 adrenergic agonist, blood substitutes, and novel anti-inflammatory agents.

Conflicts of Interest: In the past 5 years, I have received research support from the National Institutes of Health, Pfizer, Alexion, and Eisai Pharmaceuticals. In addition, I have received honoraria for lectures from Bayer Pharmaceuticals, ESP Pharma, and Hospira.

Professional Interests: My professional interests are the neurobehavioral pharmacology of anesthetics and analgesics.  This has led us to studies of anesthetic interactions resulting in a concept that general anesthesia is based not on a single general anesthetic action but on a spectrum of separate pharmacological actions, even if the anesthesia is produced by one drug.  This led to a conclusion that the search for a reliable index of anesthetic depth should be transformed into a search for separate indices of different components of anesthesia.  Our studies of anesthetic interactions indicated that a neuraxial blockade can profoundly enhance the hypnotic effect of general anesthetics.  We have also demonstrated that, in animal models, neural blockade with vanilloid agonists (resiniferatoxin) prevents incisional pain and do not affect non-painful sensation to touch or motor function.

My major project in the area of sepsis and inflammation is aimed at determining the roles of natural killer cells and cytotoxic T cells in amplifying the pro-inflammatory response and mediating organ injury during sepsis. In the area of immunomodulation, investigators in my lab are using compounds such as the hemopoietic factor Flt-3 ligand and the modified bacterial component monophosphoryl lipid A to boost the host response to burn wound infection and pneumonia.

Professional Interests: My research interests have always focused on neuropharmacology, specifically cellular and molecular aspects of receptors and ion channel structure and function.  Previously, I examined the molecular aspects of GABA type A receptors and calcium channel subunits.  Currently, my laboratory is examining the differences between alpha2 adrenergic receptor (AR) subtypes in an attempt to understand their distinct roles in neurophysiological signaling.  The specific question we are attempting to address is why do sympathetic neurons have two very similar alpha2 AR subtypes in the same neuron, do they serve different functions, and if so, how?  Our current hypothesis is that they have overlapping signaling capabilities, but they differ in their subcellular localization, hence function.

I have been actively involved in clinical studies of many of the medications used to both treat and prevent postoperative nausea and vomiting. In addition I have also evaluated nonpharmacologic approaches to the management of postoperative nausea and vomiting. I'm also interested in the broader areas of outcomes research particularly as it relates to patients undergoing outpatient surgery and anesthesia. During previous times in my career I have also studied neuromuscular blocking drugs used in the ICU, technology assessment and validation, and monitoring.

Professional Interests:: I started off as a biomedical engineer interested in modeling action potentials in axons.  As an anesthesiologist, my focus moved just a bit from axon to the neuromuscular junction.  I conducted research on most, if not all, new neuromuscular blocking agents since atracurium and vecuronium.  However, the most interesting aspect of my research was on blockade of different muscles of the body, pharmacokinetics and monitoring neuromuscular blockade.  Because measuring their effect is easy, neuromuscular blocking agents make beautiful models for the study kinetics-dynamics interactions, with principles that can be applied to all areas of anesthetic pharmacology.

Professional Interests: Although I am getting closer to achieving Emeritus Professor status ('08), I am still quite active clinically. My activity consists of to some extent cardiac Anesthesia, to a large extent Thoracic, and also activities which John Tinker would ascribe to being a Regular Old Anesthesiologist (ROA). The latter venue allows a great deal of leeway in dealing with one area of interest, namely Airway management. Although no research is in progress, I still retain a fervent interest in respiratory physiology.

Somehow I have managed to build a career around investigating the stress response to surgery. I prefer working with non-clinicians and have enjoyed fruitful research collaborations with a variety of disciplines: agricultural physiology, veterinary anesthesia, basic endocrinology, exercise physiology and psychology. Although in the twilight of my career I am still passionate about research and intend to bother PubMed with Hall GM for the next five years.
