Industry Will Play Critical Role in Funding Neurosurgery Research
With federal funding increasingly restricted, industry will play a critical role in funding neurosurgery research.
“It is likely that the role of industry in research funding in neurosurgery will continue to expand, whether by individual grants or by organizations such as the Neurosurgery Research and Education Foundation,” Loyola neurosurgeons Vikram Prabhu, MD, Russ Nockels, MD, and Douglas Anderson, MD, wrote. “We should nurture this relationship, regulating it carefully without stifling it.”
Drs. Prabhu, Nockels and Anderson are professors in the Department of Neurological Surgery of Loyola University Chicago Stritch School of Medicine. Dr. Anderson is department chair.
Industry has funded neurosurgery research for decades. “Through the years, it has brought advances to the medical field benefiting countless patients and the population at large,” Drs. Prabhu, Nockels and Anderson wrote.
