Student Published in Neuro Journal
(COLLEGE STATION, TX)–On Monday, October 18, Texas A&M Health Science Center (TAMHSC) College of Medicine third-year student Carson Fairbanks published a paper titled “Oculomotor nerve palsy in the setting of an anterior cerebral A2 segment aneurysm” in the online version of the Journal of NeuroInterventional Surgery (JNIS). The paper was co-authored with J. Bradley White, M.D., Assistant Professor of Surgery and of Neuroscience and Experimental Therapeutics.
Between his first and second years of school in 2009, a summer elective took Fairbanks to the Texas Brain and Spine Institute (TBSI) in Bryan. While there, he began developing his interest in clinical research. L. Gerard Toussaint III, M.D., a specialist in neurosurgery and research at TBSI and an Assistant Professor of Neuroscience and Experimental Therapeutics, referred Fairbanks to Dr. White, also a colleague at TBSI. Less than a year later, their paper was accepted by JNIS.
