Bruce Schoneboom PhD, CRNA, FAAN
John F. Garde Researcher of the Year 2012

The AANA Foundation’s mission of advancing the science of anesthesia through education and research is one that I clearly can identify with as research and education have been the focus of my career. My research has been as diverse as my career and I appreciate the AANA Foundation’s recognition of my work as it contributes to the science of nurse anesthesia and a broader understanding of the role of inflammation in neurodegenerative processes. As I prepare for my next assignment as the Commander of the US Army Medical Research Institute of Chemical Defense, I will know that it is in great measure the support of the AANA Foundation that has provided the tools to get me to this position.
