From UWSMPH - Department of Anesthesiology
| Matthew Banks, PhD
The Banks laboratory is interested in how sensory stimuli are represented in the firing patterns of cells in the neocortex, and how general anesthetics disrupt this coding process.
| Kirk Hogan, MD, JD
The Hogan Laboratory focuses on responses to anesthesia and surgery arising from genomic and epigenomic variation.
| Thomas McDowell, MD, PhD
The McDowell laboratory is interested in the physiology and pharmacology of pain at the level of the primary nociceptive neuron.
| Robert A. Pearce, MD, PhD
The Pearce laboratory is focused on understanding the mechanisms by which general anesthetics alter central nervous system function.
| Jay Yang, MD, PhD, MSEE
The Yang laboratory studies the basic mechanisms of clinically relevant problems such as pathological pain, heart failure (diabetic cardiomyopathy), and sepsis using cellular, molecular, and electrophysiological techniques.
