• Pediatric Anesthesiology Research Center (PARC)

    Established in 2002, the Pediatric Anesthesiology Research Center (PARC) at Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center is the only center in the world dedicated to advancing the specialty. The PARC is the research engine of the Department of Anesthesiology and has three goals:  

    • To discover the molecular, cellular, physiologic and clinical elements of pediatric anesthesia, pediatric pain medicine, and developmental neurobiology, and to translate these elements into clinical practice
    • To develop the next generation of basic scientists and clinical researchers in the field of pediatric anesthesia, pain medicine and developmental neurobiology
    • To lead the field of pediatric anesthesia, pediatric pain medicine and developmental neurobiology in the translation of research to clinical practice
  • Current Projects

    The PARC investigates a wide range of topics, all related to anesthesia and anesthesia outcomes, including Developmental Neurobiology, Developmental Pharmacology, Safety and Outcomes, and Assessment of Proficiency.
