Success Stories

Since 1980, the Neurosurgery Research & Education Foundation (NREF) has invested more than $18 million in the future of neurosurgery. As the premier funder of neurosurgical studies, the NREF supports programs that extend opportunities for neurosurgeons to collaborate and make progress in the diagnosis and treatment of neurological disorders and improved patient care.

An award from the NREF can have an extraordinary impact on a neurosurgeon. The recognition that comes from an NREF award can serve as a springboard for future research opportunities, leading to NIH funding and affecting the overall trajectory of a neurosurgical career.

An award from the NREF has the power to inspire an outstanding medical student to pursue a career in neurosurgery.

We celebrate the NREF award recipients making a difference in our field.
