The Center for Anesthesia Innovation and Quality is affiliated with the Department of Anesthesiology, Perioperative and Pain Medicine at the Brigham and Women’s Hospital. Directed by Dr. Jie Zhou, the laboratory comprises an interdisciplinary group with researchers from Anesthesiology, Neuroscience, Psychology and Nutrition.

Our research focuses around the clinical aspects of Obstetric anesthesia, Neuro anesthesia and the Obstetrics related Neurological and Neurosurgical conditions. The laboratory also tests cutting-edge high-tech material, equipment and innovational approaches to improve anesthesia quality and care to patients. One of the goals of the laboratory is to identify novel pathways to find solutions for patients with complicated neurological and neurosurgical conditions to go through peripartum or perioperative periods.
