I discuss issues pertaining to the practice of neuropathology -- including nervous system tumors, neuroanatomy, neurodegenerative disease, muscle and nerve disorders, ophthalmologic pathology, neuro trivia, neuropathology gossip, job listings and anything else that might be of interest to a blue-collar neuropathologist.

Surgical Science Museum in Chicago Features Surgicogenomics Exhibit
Karen Everingham -- formerly of the Illinois Association of Museums and now of the Historic Sites Division of the Illinois Historic Preservation Agency -- has provided me with yet another interesting link to a medical museum. The International Museum of Surgical Science, located in Chicago, is dedicated to the enhancing the understanding of the history, development, and advances of surgery and related subjects in health and medicine. Currently, there is a interesting new exhibit there titled Surgicogenomics: Genes and Stem Cells in Surgery, which addresses the use of stem cells in cutting-edge surgical procedures that have the potential to treat such conditions as Parkinson's disease and Duschenne Muscular Dystrophy. One of the scientific advisors of the exhibit is the respected pathologist Arno A. Roscher, MD of California (pictured). Thanks again to Karen Everingham for letting me know about this fascinating museum!
