18th Annual Duke Department of Anesthesiology Academic Evening The 18th Annual Academic Evening, held on Tuesday May 18 at the Millennium Hotel, was a wonderful success! Junior level investigators performing research in our department presented sixty-five posters. This represents a nearly 50% increase in participation and productivity from last year’s event, it too being a record breaker. Even more important, the surge in academic activity was widely disbursed through all training levels and divisions of the department. The prize winners are listed below and congratulations to each of those individuals and teams. However, it was a very tough year for defining those that stood out and many presentations that did not achieve a prize presented amazing research, fully consistent with the overall goal of advancing anesthesia/critical care and pain management through discovery. Dean Nancy Andrews served as our guest judge and speaker. Her presentation recounted her growth as a physician-scientist and the many lessons she learned along the way that allowed her to make fundamental discoveries in mechanisms of iron homeostasis. Dr. Andrews encouraged the nearly 150 attendees to follow their dreams, embrace unexpected results, obtain sufficient training to master the tools of science and have fun and a balanced life along the way. Thanks to everyone who participated, especially those who served as abstract judges, moderators, mentors, program directors, support staff, and those who made it possible for the clinical mission to proceed despite the heavy attendance at the event. It was a day to remember for us all!
