This week we focus on a transformative event for the UNC Department of Neurosurgery. Together with our partners in Ophthalmology, ENT Surgery, School of Medicine Administration, and the North Carolina Eye Bank, we celebrated the grand opening of the North Carolina Eye Bank Surgical Skills Lab with a ribbon cutting ceremony. The Surgical Skills Lab, which is located in Suite 3100 in the Thurston Bowles Building, has state-of-the-art equipment that will allow residents-in-training to gain hands-on experience to better prepare them for the operating room. This was made possible with the generous donation of $1 million from The North Carolina Eye Bank Inc.

Tisha Powell and ABC-11 had a great story on it.

Number one reactions from those taking their first look: "WOW!"
