Kenneth Sykes, MD, PhD was recently awarded a Foundation for Anesthesia Education and Research (FAER) Research Fellowship grant for his project titled “The effect of mGluR5 positive allosteric modulator CDPPB on nociceptive sensitivity in mice”.
A Research Fellowship Grant (RFG) provides a one-year grant to individuals participating in a clinical training program that is part of an ACGME-approved anesthesiology residency program. These 12 contiguous months of FAER-sponsored research is combined with at least six months of research that is part of the residency program continuum, for a total of 18 months of research experience.
During the 12-month fellowship period Dr. Sykes will spend a minimum of 80% of his time in research related to the project. The grant begins July 1, 2011 and runs through June 30, 2012. Dr. Sykes will be working in Dr. Rob Gereau’s lab in the Washington University Pain Center, which is one of the three research divisions in the department of Anesthesiology.
