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 research interests remain focused on neuropharmacology, specifically cellular and molecular aspects of receptor and ion channel structure and function. Previously, I investigated the assembly and electrophysiological properties of GABA type A receptor and calcium channel subunits. Currently, my research is focused on alpha2 adrenergic receptor structure as it relates to subcellular location within neurons, as well as the role of accessory proteins in modifying receptor expression and trafficking within cells and neurons. My clinical expertise lies in critical care medicine and the perioperative care of high-risk patients, such as liver transplant, trauma, and neurosurgical patients, including air medical transport of critically ill patients.

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.

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.

Boston, MA

kissin@zeus.bwh.harvard.edu

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.

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.
