Located at the main campus of The Johns Hopkins Hospital, the 5,275 square foot Hunterian Neurosurgical Laboratory houses research groups representing multiple specialties and interests within the neurosurgical community, each led by a world-renowned expert in that field.

The facility includes a fully equipped microsurgical laboratory, cell culture and microscopy facilities, quantitative image analysis, certified operating rooms and radiologic equipment.

Established in 1895 by Johns Hopkins Medicine’s first dean, William Welch, the Hunterian has a rich history of significant discoveries in neurosurgery, from surgical procedures to modern methods of administering chemotherapy for brain cancer.
