Published: August 4, 2016

Dr. Harsha Shanthanna, assistant professor in the Department of Anesthesia, has received the 2016 Carl Koller Memorial Research Grant for his proposal on preventing persistent pain after thoracoscopic surgeries.

Shanthanna will use the $50,000 award during the the next two years to study the efficacy of ketamine and memantine on post-surgical pain. His team’s planned pilot study will be carried out at St. Joseph’s Healthcare Hamilton and at the Cleveland Clinic in Cleveland, Ohio.
