Research Involves

Dr. Devereaux proposes to undertake studies that will inform the pathophysiology, epidemiology, risk assessment, prevention, and management of major vascular complications in patients undergoing surgery. To inform these issues, he will conduct trials, cohort studies, imaging studies, and bio-bank studies. Dr. Devereaux' s research program focuses on major perioperative vascular complications because: 1. it represents a major global health problem; 2. it is a neglected area of research; 3. it brings together researchers from many disciplines, creating an exciting environment with cross fertilization of knowledge; and 4. there is enormous potential to make advances and improve population health.

The primary goal of his research program is to prevent morbidity and mortality among patients undergoing surgery. He will achieve this goal by undertaking: 1. RCTs, cohort studies, imaging studies, and bio-bank studies that will inform the risk assessment and prevention of major perioperative vascular complications; and 2. integrated and end-of-grant KT activities.
