Chairman’s Message
Dr. Timothy R. Billiar

Dr. Tim BilliarWelcome to the General Surgery and Vascular Labs website. Our outstanding investigators are leaders in all aspects of surgical research, each working towards the goal of improving outcomes for patients following surgery, trauma, infection and critical illness.

Our commitment to excellence in research also drives our commitment to seek out and train the best of the next generation of biomedical scientists. Postdoctoral research fellows enjoy full access to the most up-to-date techniques and facilities available, and are able to work with renowned and exceptional principal investigators throughout their training. More information about available training positions can be found on our Education and Training page, including how to apply for our T32 training grants in either surgical trauma or vascular surgery research.

Our goal is to continue to remain at the forefront of surgical research and the study of innate immunity. Maintaining this atmosphere of learning and collaboration provides our faculty and trainees with an ideal environment to make important discoveries that will ultimately positively impact patient care.
