Topic: “It is not like it’s Brain Surgery”
Robert Friedlander, MD,
Chairman, Department of Neurological Surgery
University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine
Please reserve your seat today! 412.281.5858
The Pittsburgh Region has been beneficially impacted by the strength of its World-Class Medical Care and Research. Among the many areas of focus, illnesses of the Brain and the neurological system are emerging as a new core competency and area of promising research. In particular, the Department of Neurological Surgery at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine and clinical partner UPMC are making significant strides in the treatment of neurodegenerative diseases (such as Huntington’s and ALS), stroke, brain trauma, and spinal cord injury.
Dr. Robert Friedlander, Chairman of the Department of Neurological Surgery and an internationally renowned neurosurgeon, will discuss both his own research areas and other related areas at Pitt. One of his key areas of interest lies in how certain proteins disrupt the life cycle of neurons, resulting in ALS and related diseases—and what can be done to reduce premature death of such cells, thus reducing or blocking the resulting illness. Other interesting areas of research include new brain imaging capabilities that enhance the ability to safely perform complex brain surgery and a recently “connected” robotic arm.
Dr. Friedlander became Chair of the Department of Neurological Surgery in 2010. Prior to joining the department, Dr. Friedlander was professor of neurosurgery at Harvard Medical School and vice-chairman of neurosurgery and associate director of cerebrovascular surgery at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston. A native of Venezuela, Dr. Friedlander earned his BA and MA degrees from Brandeis University, and his M.D. from Harvard Medical School. His seven-year residency in Neurosurgery was completed at Massachusetts General Hospital. Dr. Friedlander has published many articles and received recognition for his work in multiple venues and media.
