Congratulations to faculty member Susana Vacas, MD, PhD, right, on her $1 million, five-year K23 Development Award from the NIH! Her research involves postoperative neurocognitive disorders (PCND), a significant public health problem that can lead to a cascade of complications for patients. With her mentor, Rajesh Kumar, PhD, Dr. Vacas will study high-risk patients with obstructive sleep apnea to learn more about the mechanisms of brain injury and neuroinflammation after surgery.
