Matthias Görges co-leads the Pediatric Anesthesia Research Team and the Digital Health Innovation Lab at BC Children's Hospital Research Institute. He received his MSc degree in Biomedical Engineering from the Hochschule für Angewandte Wissenschaften Hamburg, Germany, and his PhD in Bioengineering from the University of Utah, Salt Lake City, USA. Subsequently, he completed a post-doctoral fellowship in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of British Columbia, where he is currently an Associate Professor (Partner) in the Department of Anesthesiology, Pharmacology, & Therapeutics. Matthias undertakes trans-disciplinary research with a team of engineers, computer scientists, and health care providers, focusing on the development and application of new technologies primarily in pediatric anesthesia and intensive care.
Our team focuses on performing innovative research at the interface between technology and patient care. Nowadays, most of my work focuses on a) digital health platform development, and b) applications for predictive analytics, while in the past I also worked on c) data displays for clinical decision support, d) vital signs collection infrastructure, and e) closed-loop control of anesthesia.
