Research in Neurosurgery
Current Areas of Research
The Department of Neurosurgery has developed a world-class clinical research program to manage all aspects of neurosurgical oncology, including complex brain and skull-base tumors, spinal tumors and intractable, cancer-related pain disorders. Our basic and applied research programs are also regarded as premier programs with expert faculty that work closely with physician-scientists to integrate laboratory discoveries with clinical observations. Research listings of individual faculty members follow.
