Overview
Surgical Neurology of NINDS offers a clinical research training program for surgeons committed to a career in academic neurosurgery. The program is designed to foster the application of basic science research to clinical neurosurgical problems. Areas of ongoing research in the Branch include studies relating to primary brain tumors, pituitary tumors, syringomyelia, drug delivery to the CNS, vascular disease of the CNS, and functional neurosurgery (including parkinsonism and epilepsy surgery).

Surgical Neurology offers a one or two year combined basic science and clinical fellowship. Individual fellows work on specific projects targeted to clinical neurosurgical problems. One of the principal goals of the fellowship is to develop expertise for identifying basic scientific questions that underlie clinical problems and for formulating and testing hypotheses that address these questions. The Branch resources are uniquely suited to advancing research from the laboratory to the clinic. Fellows are active participants in both the laboratory and clinical phases of research projects. The Surgical Neurology Branch laboratories and clinical facilities are located in the Clinical Center on the NIH campus in Bethesda, Maryland.
