About the National Institute for Academic Anaesthesia

The establishment of the National Institute for Academic Anaesthesia (NIAA) was announced in March 2008. Its vision is, with respect to anaesthesia and related specialties, to:

  • Develop and maximise its academic profile within the healthcare profession, NHS, Universities and major research bodies
  • Facilitate high profile, influential research
  • Facilitate and support training and continuing professional education in academia
  • Improve patient care by promoting the translation of research findings into clinical practice

The research agenda is governed by the Institute’s Research Council. The initial funding partners of the Research Council are the AAGBI, the RCoA, and the journals British Journal of Anaesthesia and Anaesthesia.
