Madison, Wisconsin - For the first time, a national award given to honor the best neurosurgical research done by resident physicians in the United States has been named to honor Dr. Robert J. Dempsey, chair of neurosurgery at the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health.
The two $15,000 Resident Research Awards in Cerebrovascular Disease were awarded at the 2012 meeting of the Cerebrovascular Section of the American Association of Neurological Surgeons and The Congress of Neurological Surgeons, held in New Orleans.
The winners were Dr. Narlin Beaty from Maryland University for his study, "Involvement of Myeloid Related Protein 8/14 in Aneurysmal Subarachnoid Hemorrhage." and Dr. Bartley Mitchell from Baylor College of Medicine for his study, "Endovascular Delivery of Small-Interfering RNA and Molecular Therapeutic Strategies in CNS Disorders."
The "Robert J. Dempsey, MD, Cerebrovascular Research Award" was established to honor Dr. Dempsey for his mentoring of young physicians. Along with being chairman and a neurosurgeon at University of Wisconsin Hospital and Clinics, Dr. Dempsey is past president of The Society of Neurological Surgeons and a basic-science editor of the journal Neurosurgery.
