The Department of Neurosurgery at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill proudly welcomed Dr. Michael T. Lawton, Professor in Residence of Neurological Surgery, Tong-Po Kan Endowed Chair and Chief of Cerebrovascular and Skull Base Surgery Programs at the University of California, San Francisco. Dr. Lawton visited with UNC faculty and residents and then gave an excellent presentation in Neurosurgery Grand Rounds. The talk, entitled “The Current State of Aneurysm Surgeries,” outlined state-of-the-art aneurysm surgery as it exists in the United States today.
Dr. Lawton’s visit was made possible by the Noah K. Duncan Neurovascular Imaging Fund. Established in memory of Mr. Noah K. Duncan, this fund promotes the development of new treatments for patients with intracerebral hemorrhage resulting from aneurysms and other causes. Mr. Duncan was an avid Tar Heel fan and a great friend to the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill. He devoted his life to his family and community service. We’re very pleased to honor Noah Duncan’s memory with Dr. Lawton’s educational initiatives.
