Come Discover with Us – Pushing Neurosurgery's Boundaries
Because we deal with some of the most complicated and difficult neurosurgical diseases, we constantly face problems for which there are no definite answers. Our basic, translational and clinical research programs focus on better understanding these problems, which can lead to effective future treatments.
Our research explores a wide spectrum – from deep brain stimulation to using stem cells to repair spinal injuries to the use of cancer-fighting vaccines. We invite you to take a quick tour of two of our labs:
