Lab Overview

We at Neurosurgical Research Advancement Laboratory (NEURAL), advance the field of cerebrovascular surgery by pioneering innovative and minimally invasive endovascular approaches.  By using cutting-edge catheter and imaging technologies, we are dedicated to find new treatments for complex neurovascular and neurosurgical diseases such as stroke, intracranial aneurysms, and glioblastoma. As a truly multidisciplinary research team, our work lies at the intersection of the fields of cerebrovascular surgery, endovascular neurosurgery, neurosurgical oncology, neuroengineering, and molecular biology.

In addition, we are available as a service center for an array of research and proof-of-concept studies. We work very closely with the Animal Resource Center’s veterinary staff to ensure smooth and efficient operation of protocols and research studies. We offer a complete fluoroscopic suite equipped with a state-of-the-art Siemens Cios Spin 3D system. To inquire about our services, please email robgarci@utmb.edu.
