Prof. Albert Dahan graduated from de Vrije University in Amsterdam (MD; 1986) and Leiden University (PhD; 1990). After receiving his PhD degree, he began his residency in Anesthesiology in 1990 (a 5-year program) and founded in 1992 the Anesthesia & Pain Research Unit, a clinical research united dedicated to cardiorespiratory research. He became staff anesthesiologist in 1995 and full professor of Anesthesiology in 2014. The research unit, which he leads since its inception, performs outcomes research in anesthesia and pain (treatment) with special focus on respiratory physiology and pharmacology, and aims the widespread distribution of gained knowledge in close collaboration with academic and non-academic partners. The work in the research unit is made possible by a multitude of grants that he received from national and international funding agencies and commercial partners. Currently there are 20 PhD students in the department working under his leadership on novel anesthesia techniques, phenotyping pain patients as biomarker of pain treatment (for example by using cornea confocal microscopy to quantify small fiber neuropathy), and the pharmacology of opioids and anesthetics. He published over 400 peer reviewed papers on respiration, pain, pain treatment, anesthesia, and opioid-induced respiratory depression.
