Dr. Brummett is an Associate Professor at the University of Michigan where he is the Director of Pain Research and more broadly the Director of Clinical Anesthesia Research. He has more than 140 publications, including articles in top journals such as JAMA, JAMA Surgery, Anesthesiology, and Annals of Surgery. He is the Co-Director of the Michigan Opioid Prescribing Engagement Network (Michigan OPEN), which aims to apply a preventative approach to the opioid epidemic in the US through appropriate prescribing after surgery, dentistry and emergency medicine. In addition, his research interests include predictors of acute and chronic post-surgical pain and failure to derive benefit for interventions for interventions and surgeries primarily performed to treat pain. In particular, Dr. Brummett is interested in the impact of a fibromyalgia-like or centralized pain phenotype on analgesic outcomes. He is the Co-PI of three major NIH grants (two NIH RO1s and a P50) studying these concepts, and also receives funding from the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services, SAMHSA and the CDC.
