    Dr. Barreto Chang is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Anesthesia and Perioperative Care, with a research focus on understanding the molecular and behavioral basis of cognitive impairment after surgery. By focusing on the perioperative period, she seeks to improve both the information patients receive during the perioperative evaluation in terms of their brain health assessment and also develop potential approaches for neuroprotection during the period of surgery and postoperative recovery.
