Kristin L. Schreiber, M.D., Ph.D., is the newest editor for Anesthesiology. Dr. Schreiber is an Associate Professor at Harvard Medical School and Associate Vice Chair of Research in the Department of Anesthesiology, Perioperative, and Pain Medicine at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston. She completed her M.D. and a Ph.D. in neuroscience at the University of Minnesota, investigating reciprocal neural-immune interactions involved in infection and the development of persistent pain. She completed residency training at the University of Pittsburgh and fellowship at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, where she practices clinically as a regional anesthesiologist. Her research program investigates the development of chronic pain after surgical injury, using psychosocial and psychophysical assessment tools, in addition to biomarkers, clinical characteristics, and sociodemographics, to predict who is most at risk. Her perioperative interventional studies incorporate this dense biopsychosocial assessment of individual patients into their design, to allow more nuanced assessment of differential efficacy of preventive perioperative interventions among patients, in order to ultimately inform more personalized care. In her quantitative sensory testing lab, she investigates differences in pain processing among individuals, including how subjective pain relates to changes in physiology, and how pain may be modulated by nonopioid analgesic techniques, ranging from regional anesthetic techniques to music.
