The Foundation for Anesthesia Education and Research (FAER) provides anesthesiology research grants funding basic science, clinical, translational, health research services and education research. In 2014, 16 physician anesthesiologists representing 13 institutions received FAER grants.
The award funding exceeded $2.5 million, which is the highest amount FAER has ever awarded, breaking the record amounts of $2.412 million given in 2007 and $2.4 million in 2103.
