M3 Carson Fairbanks studies a model of an orthopedic implant with Clinical Assistant Professor Barry Veazey, M.D., October 2010

(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.
