Earlier this month, several representatives from the Department of Neurosurgery participated in the 15th annual Spring Scientific Retreat. This all-day meeting, sponsored by the Center for Biomedical Neuroscience, provides researchers from all over San Antonio with the opportunity to present scientific findings and discuss research topics with colleagues.

We are proud of all the hard work Sadiya Ahmad, Ian McDougall, MD, and Vaibhav Patel, MD, undertook in preparation for this event. We would also like to wish Dr. Patel our hearty congratulations for winning first prize in the postdoctoral category for his presentation describing a novel unidirectional drug delivery system to the brain.
