Dr. Murphy is currently the Jeffery S. Vender Chair of Anesthesiology Research and Education and Director of Cardiac Anesthesia and Clinical Research at NorthShore University HealthSystem, a hospital affiliated with the University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine. He has several areas of research interest, with a particular focus on issues related to management of neuromuscular blockade. Previous topics examined in his research include the incidence of residual neuromuscular blockade, the clinical complications related to incomplete neuromuscular recovery, and the effects of neuromuscular monitoring on clinical outcomes. Ongoing research studies includes investigations designed to identify patients at risk for residual blockade, examinations of new quantitative neuromuscular monitoring technologies, and studies designed to identify the impact of reversal agents on muscle strength following surgery.
