We cover virtually all sub specialty fields, including organ transplantation, neuroanaesthesia, regional anaesthesia and paediatrics.

Research led by department members covers areas of pain medicine, ischaemia/reperfusion injury, coagulation, intravenous anaesthesia and anaesthetic pharmacology. We have a well equipped laboratory with postgraduate students from Hong Kong, China, USA, Canada and Taiwan. We are actively involved in various clinical trials and community service.
