To say that Dr. E. Sander Connolly is a busy man is an understatement.
Dr. Connolly currently serves as Columbia University Medical Center’s Bennett M. Stein Professor of Neurological Surgery, the Vice Chairman of the Department of Neurosurgery, the Director of the Cerebrovascular Research Laboratory and the Surgical Director of the Neuro-Intensive Care Unit.
That all adds up to a great deal of work in neurological research, clinical work and educating the next generation of neurosurgeons.
The Winn Prize is an international award that recognizes outstanding, continuous commitment to research in neuroscience. Each year it is awarded to a neurosurgeon who has made, and continues to make, substantial contributions to the field.
In his Cerebrovascular Research Laboratory, for example, Dr. Connolly focuses on the effects of after-stroke inflammation and how it can be managed to help patients have better recoveries. He has pulled together a multidisciplinary team for his lab—including neurosciences experts, neurosurgery residents and medical students. Here, Dr. Connolly not only continues to foster ongoing research, but he also mentors the next generation of physicians.
Congratulations on this well-deserved honor, Dr. Connolly!
