Angela
                Meier Angela was born in Freiburg, Germany. She completed medical school in Munich, Germany (where her research focused on how the immune system detects Aspergillus) before heading to Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) at Harvard for a postdoctoral research fellowship examining the interactions between HIV and the innate immune system and how male and female immune systems differ in their ability to detect HIV. After completing her clinical training (a medical internship, a residency in anesthesiology and a fellowship in critical care medicine all at Massachusetts General Hospital) she became interested in the interactions between the immune system and anesthetic drugs.

Angela is board certified in anesthesiology and in critical care medicine and is a currently practicing physician at UCSD. She attends in the cardiovascular and surgical intensive care units. She is researching the impact of anesthetics and sedatives on the immune system how this affects our ability to fight infection and or cancer. Angela has recently received the mentored training grant from the International Anesthesia Research Society (IARS).
