Skip to main content


We're committed to continued scientific evaluation and innovation in order to find advanced neurosurgical interventions that will alleviate the impact of debilitating neurologic illness and injury worldwide.

The department’s faculty members serve on numerous editorial boards, regularly contribute to scientific journals and frequently lecture at local, regional, national and international forums to scientific and lay audiences. Department faculty are leaders in the dissemination of scientific information to neurosurgeons, including editing major textbooks in the field, writing the "Science Times" column in the journal Neurosurgery and directing the national Research Update in Neuroscience for Neurosurgeons.
