Please join us in welcoming Dr. Richard Brull to Women’s College Research Institute (WCRI) as the inaugural Evelyn Bateman Cara Operations Chair in Ambulatory Anesthesia and Women’s Health at Women’s College Hospital. Dr. Brull was selected after an international search, and his appointment began July 1.

Dr. Brull is a staff anesthesiologist at Women’s College Hospital (WCH) and a professor of anesthesia at the University of Toronto. He will also be appointed as a scientist at WCRI. Since joining WCH in 2010, Dr. Brull has led the development of a clinical research program aimed at reducing opioids, avoiding postoperative nausea and vomiting, expediting hospital discharge, and improving patient satisfaction using nerve blocks for ambulatory surgery. Among his current academic pursuits are the development of more reliable, safe, and easy to perform regional anesthesia techniques for women undergoing ambulatory breast cancer surgery and the reduction of standardized preoperative laboratory testing for all patients undergoing surgery at WCH.

The Evelyn Bateman Cara Operations Chair in Ambulatory Anesthesia and Women’s Health at Women’s College Hospital was established to advance excellence in research to optimize care for people undergoing ambulatory anesthesia. Dr. Brull’s dedication to improving anesthesia in ambulatory environments make him an excellent scientist to take on this mission.

Women’s College Research Institute thanks Cara Operations & Gail Regan, the Evelyn Bateman Estate and University of Toronto for their support funding this chair.
