A global collaboration to advance patient-centered, perioperative care through science, education and policy.

Our mission

Improve the health of the population by:

  • Inspiring a global community of innovators in perioperative care to create sustainable health care solutions
  • Advancing the science of perioperative medicine through world-class research
  • Fostering learning to develop perioperative leaders and educators
  • Leading transformative discussions to shape future perioperative care practices and health care policy

About Morpheus Consortium

Named after the ancient Greek god of dreams, the Morpheus Consortium embodies a shared aspiration to deliver innovative perioperative care to meet the evolving needs of patients undergoing major surgery. It’s also the branding of two universities, Duke and University College London, with one shared goal – to be the leaders in perioperative medicine and enhanced recovery after surgery, ultimately improving the patients’ journey from the moment their surgery is contemplated to full recovery.

Duke Anesthesiology

  • In the continuum of a life cycle of an entity, you begin by surviving, then you evolve to growth, and if you’re fortunate enough you enter that sphere of ‘lead.’ With this collaboration, we’re looking at ‘lead’ in the rearview mirror and shaping the future.

    Dr. Solomon Aronson
  • We are a very innovative department and we at Duke want to be leading the way as we move into this new era of health care.

    Dr. Timothy Miller
  • Our health systems have crossover, but are significantly different. There is a massive opportunity to learn from each other and take the best from both sides of the Atlantic.
