About the Interventional Neuroscience group

The Interventional Neuroscience Group, headed by Dr. Frank Hertel, is integrating clinical research in neurosurgery with computational research in image guided procedures, biomedical modeling and systems biomedicine.

The groups profile is shaped by  a close collaboration between the National Department of Neurosurgery at the Centre Hospitalier de Luxembourg and researchers at the LCSB. A key strength of the group is the ability to rapidly translate research results to the clinical setting improving patient care.

Current focus areas are computer aided functional neurosurgery, including work in deep brain stimulation and spinal cord stimulation, as well as research in novel approaches for improved brain tumor surgery.
