Neurology residents embrace research opportunities at UNC

Six residents spanning four post-graduate years (PGY) published research in 2015 and 2016. Research publications include Neurology, Journal of Clinical Neuroscience, Stroke, and Journal of Neurosurgery: Pediatrics.

Collaborating with UNC faculty researchers, residents Trey Bateman, Pavan Murty, Michael Forbes, Danoushka Tememe, Ameeta Karmarkar and Luke Barr published papers on a variety of topics:
