Wagener 2015 sm crThe following is a message from Susan Black, M.D.

Effective July 1, 2022, Brant Wagener, M.D., Ph.D., assumed the responsibility of leading the Resident Mentored Research Experience Track (RMRET) in the UAB Heersink School of Medicine Department of Anesthesiology and Perioperative Medicine.

Dr. Wagener is well-suited for this role. He has been heavily invested in research at UAB since he joined the department as a resident in 2009. Following his residency, he completed fellowships in Critical Care and Research (both at UAB) before joining our faculty. Currently, Dr. Wagener also serves as director of Clinical Research and director for the Systematic Training in Anesthesia Research (STAR) Program. He is actively involved in numerous research projects supported by multiple external grants and has served as a mentor for many trainees in research activities.

Dr. Wagener is taking over for Mark Powell, M.D., who served very effectively in this role prior to leaving UAB to pursue a Pediatric Anesthesiology Fellowship.

Please join me in congratulating Dr. Wagener in this new role and for his continued dedication to anesthesia research.
