A Study to Establish an Enterprise Neurosurgery Biobank

Overview

About this study

The purpose of this study is to expand biobanking to neurosurgical disorders where similar protocols do not exist in the institution (e.g., neurovascular disease) and complement existing biobanking protocols where they do exist (e.g., neuro-oncology, skull base tumors, degenerative spine).
