Neurosurgery has benefited greatly from technological advances, such as non-invasive imaging techniques, surgical tools like the operating microscope, computer-assisted neuronavigation and technology-based therapeutics, like image-guided radiosurgery.
The 2019 AANS Neurosurgery Technology Development Grant provides startup funds for student or resident research projects for cutting edge technology in neurosurgical training (i.e., 3-D printing, Virtual Reality, personal activity monitoring) or improvement of neurosurgical patient outcomes.
Applications for the 2019 grant are due Tuesday, January 1, 2019, at 5 p.m. and the winning project will be announced in March 2019. Learn more about the grant, application criteria and deadlines.
Shervin Rahimpour, MD, of Duke University is the recipient of the 2018 award for his project entitled “Augmented Reality Assisted Placement of External Ventricular Drain.”
