Morpheus Consortium


Named after the ancient Greek god of dreams, the Morpheus Consortium embodies a shared aspiration to deliver innovative perioperative care to meet the evolving needs of patients undergoing major surgery. It’s also the branding of three universities, Duke, University College London and University of Southampton, with one shared goal – to be the leaders in perioperative medicine and enhanced recovery after surgery, ultimately improving the patients’ journey from the moment their surgery is contemplated to full recovery.


Improve the health of the population by:

  • Inspiring a global community of innovators in perioperative care to create sustainable health care solutions
  • Advancing the science of perioperative medicine through world-class research
  • Fostering learning to develop perioperative leaders and educators
  • Leading transformative discussions to shape future perioperative care practices and health care policy
