We are thrilled to announce that Andrew Bishara, MD, has earned a Mentored Research Training Grant (MRTG) from the Foundation for Anesthesia Education and Research (FAER)Dr. Bishara is an assistant professor and residency graduate of the UCSF Department of Anesthesia and Perioperative Care. His research is focused on designing artificial intelligence models and studying the implementation of these models in clinical care to improve patient outcomes. The training grant will provide $250,000 in funding over a two-year period, for Dr. Bishara’s project, “Real-time Prediction of Adverse Outcomes after Anesthesia.”

Dr. Bishara’s primary mentor for the project is Dr. Atul Butte, Professor of Pediatrics and the Priscilla Chan and Mark Zuckerberg Distinguished Professor at UCSFDr. Romain Pirracchio, Chief of Anesthesia at Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital and the Ronald D. Miller Distinguished Professor of Anesthesia at UCSF, serves as secondary mentor. You can link to some of Dr. Bishara’s most recent publications below. Please join us in congratulating Dr. Bishara.
