|Lars I Eriksson
Lars I Eriksson, MD, PhD, FRCA is Professor and Academic Chair of Anesthesiology and Intensive
Care Medicine at the Karolinska Institutet. He is Head of Research and Education and Staff
Anesthesiologist at Function Perioperative Medicine and Intensive Care at the Karolinska
University Hospital, Stockholm, Sweden and since 2017 Senior Advisor to the Karolinska
Institutet Vice Chancellor.
Lars I Eriksson is heading a translational research program focusing on longterm impact by
anesthesia and surgery on higher brain functions and in particular the role of the brain immune
system. Funded by major national and international bodies, his research project includes
national and international collaborations within experimental, clinical and outcomes research.
Apart from his own research program, he has systematically built a broad translational research
platform for perioperative medicine and intensive care including experimental, clinical and
outcomes research facilities upon which an array of research and educational programs in
perioperative medicine and intensive care has been established. Since 2007, he serves as coeditor
for the Miller´s Textbook of Anesthesia and has been awarded the 2013 T. Cecil.Gray
Honorary Gold Medal from Liverpool University, UK, the 2019 James E Eckenhoff Lectureship at
University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, USA and he holds a Honorary Fellowship at the Royal
College of Anaesthetists, London, UK.
Active Member of the British Association of Day Surgery (BADS) (daysurgeryuk.net). I attended the national conferences in 2016 & 2018. I am a keen advocate of the benefits of day surgery, and strongly believe the Scottish NHS could do much more than it currently is. An interesting new area is the developing field of true day surgery hip and knee replacement which could be offered in up to 20% of arthroplasty patients. I would like to explore the development of this niche service to carefully selected patients.
Promoting Leadership Programme – I completed this enjoyable NHS Tayside organised and funded medical leadership educational course. This course consisted of is 5 whole day master classes and 6 half day business sessions.
British Medical Association member.
Association of Anaesthetists of Great Britain and Ireland (aagbi.org). It is not a coincidence that many high profile and successful medical leaders and managers in the UK are Anaesthetists. We are in a unique position to understand the complex relationships that exist in the modern NHS. We can be objective about re-configuration and development of particular areas of practice or NHS real estate and resources. The Learn@AAGBI website (which I helped to develop when I chaired the AAGBI e-Education Committee) has many video resources on aspects of medical leadership.
Fellow of the Royal College of Anaesthetists.
I am a Medical Appraiser. I am the appraiser of 7 peers who come a wide range of specialties (only one is a fellow anaesthetist). The multi disciplinary spectrum of my appraisees gives me additional insight into areas of the organsiation that I’m less familiar with. I enjoy being an appraiser and believe in the value of the process to both the individual appraisees and the NHS.

Roman Zuercher is an alumnus of the University of Basel, Switzerland.
As the former medical head of the orthopedic, obstetric and gynecological operating theatres, he has established ultrasound-guided regional anesthesia more than a decade ago as a standard practice at the University of Basel. He is particularly interested in the advancement of continuous nerve block techniques for pre- and postoperative pain control, regional anesthesia procedures to reduce chronic pain following surgical interventions as well as new concepts in anesthesia for cancer surgery. At the moment he is the Director of the Regional Anesthesia Program and Head of the Ambulatory Center at the Bethesda Hospital in Basel, Switzerland.
Roman is a dedicated clinical anesthesiologist with a keen interest in promoting and teaching regional anesthesia. His extracurricular interests include family outings with his wife Corinne and his three children in the mountains of his Swiss homeland.
