Brain surgery, science and education

As a pediatric neurosurgeon, neuroscientist, and educator, I come across many interesting bits of information and wonderful people. I will try to share some of this with you here. While the site draws heavily from my experiences as the Campagna Chair of Pediatric Neurosurgery at Oregon Health & Science University, and head of neurosurgery at Doernbecher Children's Hospital, this is a personal blog. My thanks to my wonderful OHSU colleagues, who share this exciting and rewarding work with me.

OHSU Neurosurgery Residency 2012 Match

It is a true pleasure to announce the very strong results of the OHSU 2012 Neurosurgery Residency Program Match. For the first year ever, OHSU entered the match with three residency slots, and filled all three positions with top applicants.

Dr. Kunal Gupta, MB, ChB, holds both the British equivalent of an MD (the bachelor of medicine and surgery, ‘chirurgiae’) and a PhD from the University of Cambridge, England. During his research training, Dr. Gupta did basic work on oxidative stress in astrocytes, as well as extensively studying risk factors in British society for the occurrence of brain tumors. A tennis player and skier, Dr. Gupta is also a competitive ballroom dancer.

Dr. Katie Krause, MD, PhD, undertook both her medical and scientific training at the Medical College of Wisconsin, Milwaukee. Dr. Krause’s thesis work and extensive publications investigated the respiratory control function of the brainstem Kolliker-Fuse nucleus. She is a pianist, experienced piano teacher, and an outdoor enthusiast.

Dr. Tristan Stani, MD, studied Philosophy, Classics and the History of Science at St John’s College before matriculating at the Warren Alpert School of Medicine at Brown University. He returns to OHSU for residency training after spending the summer here as the 2009 Mario and Edith Campagna Scholar. His research work has concentrated on mitochondrial diseases and, at OHSU, on the effects of deep brain stimulation for tremor on precision grip. Dr. Stani is also an outdoor enthusiast.

The Residency Program in Neurosurgery is proud of the outstanding quality of trainees who come to OHSU from around the country, and the world. The Program trains a group with exceptional creative and scientific accomplishments, of diverse background, and including one of the highest proportions of women in any U.S. training program.
